Event description

Description

Join us for the sixth annual CiderFest NC fundraiser, featuring ample tastings of hard cider, mead and apple wine, along with artisanal food, live music, workshops, a kids zone, and more along the scenic French Broad River.

As the largest annual fundraiser for the nonprofit Green Built Alliance, the al-fresco event will be held during the peak of fall colors and the height of this area's busiest tourism season from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018 at the Salvage Station, at 468 Riverside Drive, just outside of downtown Asheville, NC.

The fifth annual CiderFest in 2017 connected a record-setting 1,500 people with 20 national and local cider, mead and apple wine makers, and the 2018 event is expected to draw another sell-out crowd to sample sips from an even larger mix of local and national, small and large pourers. In addition to tasting cider and mead, guests can enjoy free bites of artisanal food including local cheeses, baked goods, caramels, ice cream, and more. This year's event will also welcome a mix of food trucks to offer paid meals for hungry cider-sippers throughout the afternoon.

This quintessential family-friendly fall fest also offers arts and crafts from local vendors, live music, a kids zone, and community demos and workshops.

For the second time this year, a limited number of VIT (Very Important Taster) tickets offer advance entry to the event a full hour early beginning at noon to enjoy exclusive access to tastings from our cider and mead makers and artisanal food vendors before the crowds arrive. You may even have the opportunity to sample some specialty, small-batch or limited-release ciders and meads that won't be available during the regular event. In addition to early access, VITs will also receive free parking on-site at the Salvage Station for convenient access to make the most of your time at the event, as well as a complimentary commemorative CiderFest NC snifter.

CiderFest NC is a carbon-neutral event and will be offsetting the event's footprint for each ticketholder through contributions to the nonprofit's Appalachian Offsets program, which is currently fundraising to install a solar system on the roof of Isaac Dickson Elementary School.

Tickets go on sale on Fourth of July, and since the event has sold out in recent years, people are encouraged to plan ahead and buy their tickets early.
