I always have the greatest time visiting Vashon Island and attending Cider Fest. This event was my very first "cider-centric" event 2 years ago. In the morning through afternoon there is an apple tent showcasing the island's many old time and hard to find apple varieties. Got a mysterious apple on your property? Take samples with you and you will find one of Northwest's leading apple scholars Dr. Bob Norton identifying the mystery fruit.
Later on head over to Misty Isle Farms for some workshops, bbq and to taste the very best cider the Northwest has to offer.
See you there!
Here is the official press release info:
You’re invited to the Vashon Island CiderFest!
If you missed it last year, put October 9th on your calendar. CiderFest is a growing community event that promises to be loads of fun!
Activities on the Village Green are free, but you must have a ticket to attend the events at Misty Isle Farms. Space at the Cider Tasting, Barbeque Dinner and Barn Dance may be limited, so get your tickets in advance!
Also offered are raffle tickets for a one of a kind, custom made steel cider press made by Islander Bob Powell of meadowcreature.com to be raffled off on the Village Green by the Vashon Island Fruit Club.
We hope to see you there!
