Where and when

Grape Stomp heats take place on the roof of the Fisher Pavilion, on Saturday, starting at 11:40 AM. The last heat takes place at approximately 3:40 PM. Our MC will again be “famous dude from Ballard,” Doc Bailey.

Each team competes against their rivals to create and collect as much grape juice as possible in a messy and frenetic 3-minute stomp!
