Registration for Reserved Totes now open!
When do we stomp?
Arrive at noon. to get your participant wristband and check out the food and music. Entry to stomping grounds will begin at 1:30 pm, and the stomp will follow as close to 2:00 pm as possible.
Who can stomp?
This event is for Adults and Students in grade 6th and higher (age 11 & up.) Stompers should be without physical limitations that would prohibit them from stepping into a 4' high container with step stool assistance. You will be stomping grapes in a 4'x4' picking tote for a minimum of 3 1/2 minutes. There is a chance there will be bees, so we suggest anyone with bee allergies use proper precautions and protocols to keep themselves safe.
Why can’t my little bear cub stomp?
Guinness rules require that participants must stomp continuously for a minimum of 3 minutes.
Children 10 and under are permitted tp stomp on a case-by-case basis and must remain with their parent or legal guardian who is responsible to make sure the child keeps stomping for the full 3 1/2 minutes (or our attempt may be disqualified by Guinness!)
Not sure if your little bear cub wants to squish the grapes? With adult supervision, children who want to try stomping are invited to check out the special stomping tote and take a photo before the official attempt. If they decide it is not for them, non-stompers are welcome to watch along the fenceline as there will be ample viewing room, but no adult supervision.
Children under 5 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Non-stompers will not be allowed in the stomping area due to safety concerns and possible disqualification.
Where can I park?
The event is located at Oregon Mutual Insurance between 4th and 5th off 99W. Parking can be found at the parking structure between 5th and 6th off Evans Street and streets surrounding the event.
What should I bring?
We will be stomping rain or shine, so bring weather-appropriate gear. You might want to bring clean rain boots to wear while stomping (wearing leather, fabric, or open-toed shoes while stomping is prohibited). Or, stomp barefoot and bring a towel to wipe off and a bag to hold your shoes.
Limited edition commemorative towels and drawstring cinch sacks will be available for purchase when the gates open at noon. So get to the event early and claim your souvenirs!
