Seventh Annual CiderFest
October 12 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
After record turnout at 2018’s event, planning is underway for the seventh annual CiderFest NC fundraiser featuring ample tastings of hard cider, mead and apple wine, along with artisanal food, live music, workshops, a kids zone, and more along the scenic French Broad River.
As the largest annual fundraiser for the nonprofit Green Built Alliance, the al-fresco event will be held during the peak of fall colors and the height of this area’s busiest tourism season in Asheville, NC.
The sixth annual CiderFest in 2018 connected 2,000 guests with national and local cider, mead and apple wine makers, and the 2019 event is expected to draw another sell-out crowd to sample sips from a mix of local and national, small and large pourers. In addition to tasting cider and mead, guests can enjoy bites of artisanal food including local cheeses, baked goods, caramels, ice cream, and more.
This quintessential family-friendly fall fest also offers arts and crafts from local vendors, live music, a kids zone, and community demos and workshops.
Since the event has sold out in recent years, people are encouraged to buy tickets early. Find more information and purchase tickets at www.ciderfestnc.com.
