With so many delicious and fun activities, one weekend isn’t enough to do it all! Join us for pie-eating contests, grape stomping, craft and vendor shows, cornhole, “Run for the Grapes” 5K, baby photo contests, live music and more. Also, be sure to stop by the Miss Grapette Pageant to see which young lady will represent the Grape Jamboree! And don’t miss out on one of the famous Grape Jamboree parades. Yes, we said that right. There are two parades — one each day of the festival!

 

What festival would be complete without food? There are so many opportunities to eat! Try the region’s grape pies, jellies, wine and so many other grape-inspired foods. After your time at the festival, don’t forget to explore Geneva for some more amazing wineries known for their sweet wines. If you’re getting hungry and looking for some sit-down dining, try out one of our local restaurants for a meal you won’t soon forget.
