Lodi Grape Festival

Welcome to the 2013 Grape Festival

Dear Festival-goers,

I want to welcome all of you to this year’s Lodi Grape Festival. As you can see in this publication, there are a lot of exciting things going on at the fair. Our ultimate goal of the event is to promote agriculture with a focus on grapes.

Each food concession at the fair has been asked to sell an item with grapes in it; please try these new items. We have also added the Wine Cellar with four wine tasting sessions.

Lodi muralist creates 1950s-style signs for food concession building

Lodi Grape Festival President and CEO Mark Armstrong decided that the main concession structure at the west end of the festival grounds needed some sprucing up. He also wanted to attract more people to sample the mouth-watering corn dogs, hamburgers, french fries, Mexican cuisine and other delights.

Armstrong said that he considered tearing down the building and creating something new in its place. Then he turned to Tony Segale, who is known for painting some realistic-looking murals throughout Downtown Lodi.

“He said, ‘Paint the building any color you want,’” Segale said.

Lodi Grape Festival uses social media to reach out to community

When the Grape Festival first opened in 1934, there were many things the organizers could not have foreseen. The creation of the Internet and the rising popularity of smartphones are two examples. The concept of posting a photo to Instagram, where it could instantly be seen by thousands of people, would have been completely alien.

Grapes into art

Perhaps no tradition is more linked to the Lodi Grape Festival than the creation and exhibition of grape murals. Each festival, dozens of groups painstakingly assemble murals composed largely of grapes.

Poll

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
