Home to over 30 cideries and ranked 4th in the country for apple production, Pennsylvania is celebrating cider in a big way with a statewide festival.
Join fellow cider enthusiasts for the PA Cider Fest located in the heart of Adams County apple country. Coined “Cider Town” because of its growing cider industry, historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania welcomes cider makers and enthusiasts to the PA Cider Festival.
Saturday’s festival will welcome cider makers from all over the state to showcase their ciders, provide samples and to sell product to ticket holders. Activities will include special seminars from cider experts focusing on apple pressing, cider apples, cider pairing and tasting tips. With live music and orchard tours, Adams County orchards will offer a picturesque backdrop to taste the finest PA-produced ciders. Taking place rain or shine (no refunds), the festival will also feature foods for purchase from local food trucks and vendors.
The festival weekend will kick off with an exclusive meet-the-cider makers dinner, Friday, June 24. Limited seating will be available. Additional weekend events will include exclusive tap takeovers at a variety of restaurants and pubs in downtown Gettysburg showcasing Pennsylvania ciders, dishes and pairings.
Festival transportation will be provided and accommodation packages are available.
