The Third Annual CiderFest NC
For the third year, CiderFest NC delights visitors and locals to the area with its delicious beverages and outright-darn-good fun! Read on to learn more about this much-anticipated Asheville event.
What It Is
CiderFest NC is an event created and nurtured by the WNC Green Building Council that takes place at the WNC Farmers Market. It is a festival celebrating the original American beverage - hard cider! 650 guests will be in attendance and we recommend that you plan in advance, as this event sold out the first and second years just days before the event. A dozen hard-cider makers from all over Southern Appalachia will be there and samples will be a plenty!
What to Expect
There was so much enthusiasm for the past two year's event that we can only assume that energy will carry over into this year. Lots of excitement from all parties is expected and if you're a home brewer yourself, you'll have plenty of opportunities for collecting pro-tips. Naked Apple Hard Cider, Black Mountain Ciderworks, Urban Orchard Cider Co, Noble Cider, Red Clay Ciderworks, Sourwood Brewing Co, and many more will be represented so come ready to give your taste buds a workout!
When to Be There
CiderFest NC takes place on Saturday, November 7th from 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM at the WNC Farmers Market on Brevard Road. Tickets are on sale now and due to the expected sell out, we suggest you scoop yours up soon! Music starts right at 1:00 PM with 5 Asheville Busker Bands playing throughout the day (sure to be a great time!).
Where to Stay
As with any local festival, staying local is key to fully enjoying the event. Returning to your own home away from home at the end of a long day of tasting and exploring makes for a more enjoyable vacation all around. Carolina Mornings has dozens of amazing vacation rentals in and around the Asheville area, each one unique.
