Julian’s Grape Stomp Festa is a great way to spend a Saturday.  We are excited to return in 2023.

With local wineries offering sips to sample, a wide variety of food and shopping opportunities, great music and undoubtedly, a little extemporaneous dancing here and there, this will be a party to remember!

Better Yet, make a weekend visit out of it.  Check out our lodging page for great places to stay in Julian.

 These are important things to note to help you enjoy your visit

  • Bring cash (small bills), the internet is spotty at this location and connecting to pay with cards can be very time consuming.
  • Even if you are 99, you need to bring your ID. Licensing for the event requires all IDs must be checked in order to get the “21+” wrist band, which is required for tastings.
  • Feel Free to bring your own lawn chairs.
  • We have doubled the shaded seating for 2023
  • There will be great food vendors at the event. Bring your appetite.
