Visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or a blanket to picnic on the expansive lawn, but no coolers please. The highlight of the Grape Stomping Festival is the Lucy Look-A-Like Contest, where "I Love Lucy" Fans will get their chance to don their best Lucy costume and reenact the famous 1956 episode of "I Love Lucy" when Lucy takes a job in a vineyard and stomps grapes. It’s going to be a “grape” time at the Annual Grape Stomping Festival on Saturday, August 26, from 10:00 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Deep Water Vineyard. Visitors can stomp local muscadines for the Grape Stomping Contest, compete in the annual Lucy Look-Alike Contest and enjoy a fun-filled day under the oaks at Charleston’s only vineyard and winery. Admission is only $10.00 per car (in advance, via the link below, they are $20 at the gate the day of the festival) with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Frierson Elementary School.
