Welcome from Mark Armstrong
On behalf of the entire Lodi Grape Festival Association, I want to welcome you to the 2019 Lodi Grape Festival.
As always, we are striving to make it the best Festival yet, with diverse entertainment including Elton Rohn, an Elton John tribute, The Grass Roots, Los Lonely Boys and WAR. There are also four other stages filled with family fun from open to close.
This year — in addition to our fantastic grape and commodity murals — we have added a tropical bird show, canine stunt show, Walk on the Wild Side wild animal exhibit, an optical illusion show, an interactive NASCAR exhibit and much more.
Food is bountiful at the Festival — along with vendors, carnival, rides, craft beers and, of course, wine and wine tasting.
As a staff, we will work overtime to make sure the event is safe and for all who attend. As with years past, there will be bag checks and metal detectors at the gates and lots of police and security making the rounds.
Come and enjoy the Festival and help celebrate the grape and all the bounty it brings to our community.
Mark Armstrong, General Manager
