The Downtown Stomp Returns to Historic Downtown Rosenberg

Wine lovers and shopping mavens are invited to come out and enjoy the annual Downtown Stomp. The evening is set for Saturday, August 5th at 5 pm. Over 300 people attended the 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 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 to eat, they will have their choice of open businesses. Twenty merchants have stepped forward to offer extended hours and be part of the unofficial kick-off for the Fort Bend County Fair.

“We are so excited to once again be partnering with the Rosenberg Arts Alliance in hosting the 4th Annual Downtown Stomp,” said Downtown Stomp Director Elizabeth Duff–Drodz. “This event not only allows us to bring awareness to our Fair, but proceeds raised assist in providing scholarships that benefit the youth of Fort Bend County – and that’s our ultimate goal.” Over $140,000 was awarded for scholarships from monies earned from 2015 events.

“The Downtown Stomp is a great event that helps bring awareness to the Fort Bend County Fair out in the community to a new audience while showcasing the wonderful vendors of historical Downtown Rosenberg,” said 2017 Fair President Ernest Lawson. “It is a win-win for all parties involved and especially the youth of Fort Bend County, because they benefit directly from all proceeds raised by this event through our scholarship program.”

Featured wines are still being selected. There will be a live band, food trucks and beer and wine sales at the bandstand area beginning at 7 pm. Tickets and keepsake wine glasses are now on sale online at or at the Fair office.
