Cider makers from across Pennsylvania will converge on the rolling hills outside historic Gettysburg this summer for the third annual PA Cider Fest on June 23. The event gives cider enthusiasts and those new to the trending beverage a chance to sample dozens of cider varieties while enjoying great live entertainment and food trucks.
Coined “Cider Town” because of its growing hard cider industry, Gettysburg and its surrounding countryside will welcome more than 20 ciders makers and hundreds of cider enthusiasts to this statewide event, which will feature a variety of alcoholic ciders.
Adams County’s apple orchards will offer a picturesque backdrop to taste the finest Pennsylvania-produced ciders.
PA Cider Fest is held at the home of Jack’s Hard Cider at Hauser Estate Winery in Biglerville, Pa. Last year, the event attracted 2,000 people to the one-day festival.
Tickets to the PA Cider Fest are $25 in advance and $30 at the gate.
The PA Cider Fest is sponsored by PA Preferred, a program by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture that encourages Pennsylvanians to support fellow state farmers by purchasing products made throughout the state.
In addition to cider tasting, festivalgoers can also purchase cider directly from participating cider makers. Also, activities will include special seminars from cider experts focusing on apple pressing, cider apples, cider pairing and tasting tips.
