Get Ready For CiderFest NC 2015!

October 9th, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

CiderFest NC 2015The original, North Carolina, hard cider tasting festival is back for its third year: CiderFest NC 2015 is scheduled for Saturday, November 7th at the WNC Farmer’s Market in Asheville!

CiderFest NC is North Carolina’s premier hard cider tasting event, growing from the initial, humble event to an annual hard-cider tasting blowout! Over twenty hard cider makers attend from all over the region, out of the state, and even a few imported, Spanish ciders will be here. Along with the ciders, CiderFest NC also welcomes local mead makers, food for cider pairings, local arts and craft vendors, and great local bands providing live music to keep your toes a-tappin’ as you tipple!

Music at this year’s CiderFest NC will be provided by local bands and buskers placed here and there throughout the festival. These more intimate, unplugged, acoustic acts will allow festival attendees to enjoy live music at a more freindly level as they wait in line or enjoy their samples.
