Swig and stomp: Get your drink on at these boozy bashes

Participants are allowed to take their shoes off and jump right in at Pahrump Valley Winery’s Grape Stomp Festival.

Prost! Oktoberfest’s annual 16-day Bavarian bash ends October 5. Where are you raising a stein to celebrate? Consider the City of Las Vegas’ family-friendly Oktoberfest—at Fifth Street School’s Centennial Plaza—with German beers and food, the Las Vegas Bavarian Dancers and a German oompah band. (October 4, 2-9 p.m., free.) More of a wino than a hophead? Pahrump Valley Winery’s annual Grape Stomp Festival features wine tastings, live music and, of course, some fruit-smashing action. Registration for stomping teams has closed, but who doesn’t want to watch a bunch of people make messy fools of themselves? (October 4-5, doors at 11 a.m., $5.) Finally, omnivorous drinkers will find the Grapes & Hops Festival at Springs Preserve right up their alley. Wine and beer lovers can sample both, paired with bites from local restaurants and tunes by the Ryan Whyte Maloney Trio. (October 4, VIP entrance 4 p.m.; 5 p.m., $41-$100.)
