Launched in 2011 as a way to connect influencers in the restaurant and retail world with exciting developments in New York cider, Cider Week festivals offer a variety of dining, educational and promotional events at a diverse group of venues in four key regions. At participating restaurants, bottle shops, bars and orchards you can celebrate cider in a variety of ways: tastings, food pairings, educational seminars, even orchard and cidery tours where you can see how apples grow, are harvested, and pressed into the juice needed to make craft cider.
