Wine lovers and shopping mavens are invited to come out and enjoy the second annual Downtown Stomp. The evening is set for Saturday, August 1st from 5 to 9 pm. Over 300 people attended the inaugural event last year.

Shopping after hours, wine tasting and raising money for a good cause is the goal of the Downtown Stomp. The Fort Bend County Fair and its wine committee, known as the Grapes on the Brazos, have partnered with the Rosenberg Arts Alliance to host the Downtown Stomp in the Historic Downtown Rosenberg shopping area.

Merchants will be open for shopping and hors d’oeuvres. Whether attendees are looking for some fair fashions, jewelry, furniture, antiques or a little something sweet to eat, they will have their choice of open businesses. Eighteen merchants have stepped forward to offer extended hours and be part of the unofficial kick-off for the Fort Bend County Fair.

“It is a great way to connect to the community, and it also brings awareness to our fair,” said Fair President Margaret Kunz. “Once again, here’s an opportunity to showcase that our fair is willing to host events year round to help raise monies for Fort Bend County students.” Over $160,000 was awarded this year for scholarships from monies earned from 2014 events.

Featured wines are still being selected. Texas Direct Auto has generously stepped up to be the Champaign Sponsor. Tickets and keepsake wine glasses are now on sale at the fair office or online at www.fortbendcountyfair.com.
