Seattle’s Premier Cider Event is Back!
After a year without festivals, things are returning to normal. For instance, Seattle’s premier cider event returns to the shores of Lake Union on September 10th and 11th. Tickets are now on sale for the 2021 Cider Summit Seattle. Get the early bird special if you order tickets before August 1st.
This year’s festival will feature over 150 ciders, meads, cider cocktails, and apple spirits. The selection includes regional favorites as well as international classics. Many of the cidermakers will be there to help guide your tasting experience. In addition to standard 2-ounce pours, guests are encouraged to order tasting flights so they can enjoy even more variety in smaller pours.
One of the cool things about this event, your ticket is good for either or both days. You’ll get a wristband and a tasting glass (don’t lose either of them) and that is all you need for either/both days. There is also a VIP option that will earn you early entrance to the event on Friday.
- Food available for purchase from Frelard Tamales, Seattle Monster Dogs, Kaffeeklatsch and more!
- Dog Lounge hosted by and benefiting Seattle Humane. Your well-behaved dogs on leash are welcome!
- Live cidermaker interviews are available online via the Cider Summit Facebook page.
Location: Lake Union Park – 860 Terry Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109.
Friday, September 10th. 3:00 – 8:00. (VIP at 2:00).
