Saturday & Sunday September 29th & 30th, 2007
The Geneva Area Grape JAMboree celebrates the harvesting of grapes. Visitors may taste grapes, freshly squeezed grape juice, wine and various grape products. All entertainment, including “grape stomping,” is free! Two giant parades: Saturday, 1:30p.m. and Sunday 2:00p.m. featuring Ohio Festivals Queens. The art show, craft fair, street dancing, sports competition, and exhibits make the JAMboree an entertaining, JAM-packed weekend for the entire family.
Approximately 1500 acres of grapes are grown in the Geneva, Ohio area.
Most of the grapes are processed into juices, concentrates or wine. Specific growing conditions, which exist only in a narrow band from the Lake Erie shore to 10 miles inland, contribute to the success of grape growing in this region. In the fall, the warm waters of the lake help prevent early fall frosts which may damage the grape crop before it can be harvested. The local grapes, especially the concords, are featured at the annual Geneva Grape JAMboree
Geneva is in Northeastern Ohio, 2 miles north of I-90. For more information call (440) 466-JAMB or visit www.grapejamboree.com
