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 three key regions: the Finger Lakes, the Hudson Valley and New York City. 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. You can learn more about Cider Week events at each festival’s site:
If you produce cider from New York State apples and would like to be a part of official Cider Week NYC Activities, please join NYCA to learn more about our plans for trade and consumer events this fall. If you are an NYC venue interested in hosting a Cider Week event during the fall festival, you can learn more here.
If you are a cider producer or distributor representing cider made from apples grown outside of New York State, learn more here.
