 About this 10th Annual CIDER SWIG

The 10th year of The Cider Swig will include dozens of Northwest ciders to sample, fantastic live music, competitions and activities, artisan merchants, and delicious “curbside cuisine” from local chefs and their food trucks.

More than 130 NW ciders, as well as wine, mead, beer, spirits, and other locally created libations, are on display at the tasting event. Cider Swig links festival visitors with the manufacturers, a concept that was inspired by a love of local flavour, a dedication to community, and the environment. Additionally, you may purchase your favourites from the Swig’s Pop-up Bottle Shop to enjoy at home!

The largest single-day cider festival in Washington celebrates our region’s agricultural heritage, strengthens community ties, supports nearby businesses, agricultural and environmental organisations, and features local talent throughout the day. It also shares cider and other locally/regionally crafted drinks with the general public.

And don’t forget to enter the Swig’s second annual Hammerschlagen, Apfelweingkrug (carrying a cider stein), and Keg Toss events to face off against your friends and other festival attendees!

For the 19th annual Cider Swig, we’re going BIG in support of our watershed. Look at the great lineup! (Revised each week)
