Paw Paw Wine & Harvest Festival

In about six weeks, we will celebrate the growing of grapes and the art of wine making at the Paw Paw Wine and Harvest Festival. You can gather together your group of friends, compete at stomping grapes at the Coca Cola Grape Stomp, run or walk in our Grape Lake 5K Run/Walk, enjoy your choice of entertainment at one or more of the five entertainment stages. The wineries are offering percentage off your purchase of award-winning wines.

Start your visit in Paw Paw on Friday evening with the fireworks over Maple Lake sponsored by the Paw Paw Downtown Development Authority. On Saturday, bring your classic car or truck and participate in the Classic Car Show sponsored by John H. Tapper and Tapper Ford.

On Sunday, enjoy local churches entertaining at the Maple Lake Amphitheatre or enjoy the St. Julian Festival parade. Park your car and travel
around the downtown area with the Grape Escape Trolley sponsored by Omni Credit Union. Try your skill at kayaking in the Grape Lake Kayak race sponsored by Lounsbury Excavating.
