(HERMANN, MO)–The stage is set for another summer of exciting family fun at Stone Hill Winery.
First, we’re gearing up for the 18th annual Cajun Concert on the Hill, set for July 13, 14 and 15. Recording artist Ed Gary and the Louisiana Cajun Aces will make the 800-mile trek from the bayous of Louisiana to perform the three-day concert. The concerts are scheduled, rain or shine, for Friday night, July 13, 6 p.m. - 10 p.m.; Saturday, July 14, 1 p.m. - 6 p.m.; and Sunday, July 15, 1 p.m. - 6 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the door two hours before each concert. Adult pavilion tickets—$10 each day; Grounds tickets Saturday and Sunday—$4. Special two- and three-day passes and children’s tickets are available.
Next, guests can stomp to the music of the Boney Goat Band for fun and charity at the Great Stone Hill Grape Stomp on August 11. Stone Hill Winery will sponsor the 30th annual Grape Stomp to help raise funds for River Bluff Industries, Inc., a non-profit sheltered workshop for the mentally and physically challenged in the Hermann area. Cash prizes will be awarded to the winners of each age category, which includes 0-12, 13-19, 20-39, 40-55 and over 55. Special prizes will be awarded to the winners of the “Grand Stomp-Off” and the Grand Style Stomp-Off” competition. There’s a limited number of stompers, so the registration line forms early! Registration for stompers begins at 11 a.m.; the Stomp begins at 1 p.m. Stomping fee–$5; Watching fee–$3.
Finally, Stone Hill will present its 13th annual Big Band Dance on August 25 at 8 p.m. in the pavilion at the winery in Hermann. The Blue Knights, a 12-piece orchestra from St. Louis, will be back for an encore presentation of “Swing's the Thing,” featuring the best tunes of the ’40s and ’50s. From 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., guests can swing to the big band era music that made Sinatra a star. Tickets are $20 and must be purchased in advance by calling 800-909-9463.
Cajun dancers will be on hand to teach
you all those tricky Cajun dance steps.
