Cider Swig returns, following the pandemic imposed hiatus, with dozens of Northwest ciders to sip, live music, contests and games, and award winning "curbside cuisine" by area chefs and their food trucks/tents!

The tasting event will showcase more than 130 NW ciders, in addition to wine, mead, beer and other regionally crafted libations. Born out of a commitment to community and the environment, and the love for local flavor, Cider Swig connects festival goers directly with the makers. And, the Swig's Pop-up Bottle Shop is back, so you can take your favorites home to enjoy!

Beyond sharing cider and other local/regional crafted sips with the masses, Washington's largest single day cider-centered festival highlights our region's agricultural heritage, reinforces community friendships, promotes local businesses, agricultural and environmental organizations, and showcases regional talent throughout the day.

We are thrilled to be back LIVE. Check out the amazing line-up!
