The folks in Stanthorpe have been crushing it with their Apple and Grape festival since 1966, and once again, Rebel 97.1 FM is back this year to bring the beat to the party. The 10 day festival might nearly be over, but the best events are yet to come, including the Grape Crushing Championship, Rebel FM street Carnival and fireworks extravaganza.
If you’ve never gone before, you need to. Make it a tradition like we have. It’s a feast for all the senses, with delicious food and wine grown locally from the heart of the Granite Belt Wine Region.
“It’s a fantastic event, one hell of a party. One of the best events on the Queensland event calendar,” says Ash Palmero from Rebel 97.1 FM’s breakfast show, who has gone every time the festival comes around.
The weekend will be jam packed with live music, food markets, and roving entertainers all throughout the Stanthorpe CBD. And don’t miss the iconic Celebrity Grape Crush where competitors battle it out to see who has the fastest feet.
Come see us and keep the party going all day, enjoy the parades and bands and all the fun fruity delights.
