Carlton Crush Puts the Focus, and the Feet, on Oregon Wine

Carlton Crush Harvest Festival has become one of the signature wine events in the north Willamette Valley. The 2022 Crush is scheduled for September 10th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and features an array of exciting activities for young and old.

‘Watch as teams stomp on grapes, or sign up if you’re adventurous! The winning team will receive special prizes. The Carlton Business Association (CBA) sponsors the Grape Stomp Competition with teams of four people each. “Grapes are stomped in bare feet, in a half-barrel, with each team member stomping for one minute apiece.”  Visit Carlton Crush on the web and follow it on Facebook for updated posts.

‘Visitors and town folk not stomping can visit the Artists’ Market, listen to live music and enjoy food from Main Street restaurants or vendor booths. All events are held in the Upper Park or downtown Carlton.

Our inns are doing everything in our power to keep you safe. Not sure if your favorite inn is open? Give them a call as they probably are.
