August is almost over. The grape-growing season has passed and it is time for wines to be made and aged. This means that, before too long, area wineries will be shutting down for the season to prepare for next year. While this may seem like an almost melancholy time of year, nearby Truro Winery sends the season out in style with their annual Truro Treasures Grape Stomp and Music Fest on the afternoon of Sunday September 21!
From 2-6 p.m. you can join hundreds of your closest friends for live music, munchies, and a front-row seat to the grape stomping event! Bring your blanket or chairs to enjoy the festivities, including music by The Fringe with their folk sounds featuring mandolin highlights and vocals by Tim Sweeney.
In fact, the Grape Stomp and Music Fest is the final culmination of an entire weekend of Truro festivities including (but not limited to):
Saturday: Paperback Book Sale, Arts and Crafts Fair, Flea market, and concert by Kingsbury Strings
Sunday: 5K Run/Walk, Golf Tournament, Paperback Book Sale, Flea Market, Arts and Crafts Fair, Dog Show, and the above-mentioned Grape Stomp
Truro Treasures is a non-profit organization whose goals are to encourage community pride and originally raised money to help save the Highland Lighthouse. Now the mission is much more simple: organize a weekend of fun that benefits and builds the community as a whole. And if they’re able to help some non-profits while they’re at it, then even better! In fact, the local organizations that have benefitted from Truro Treasures is in the double-digits.
Admission and parking are both free for the Grape Stomp, and many of the weekend’s events are also free, so help us celebrate a beautiful summer and welcome fall during your getaway at one of Provincetown’s Distinguished Inns!
