Returning This Year: Ciderfest!

Staff

With the area producing 25 percent of Ontario’s apples, we can truly say, ‘Cider Grows Here’. And this is your chance to taste them all during the second annual Apple Pie Trail Ciderfest, June 7 – 16. Ten days of hard cider and food pairings, taking you from Duntroon to Blue Mountain, Beaver Valley, Thornbury, and Meaford.

The Cider Pairing Passport is your ticket to taste, and a chance at great prizes.

Your passport includes pairings at seven cider stops. Choose between the $30 weekday passport (valid Monday – Friday) or upgrade to the 7 Days a Week passport for $50. Enjoy food and hard cider pairings at Duntroon Cyder House, Beaver Valley Cidery, Kaytoo Restaurant & Bar (featuring Coffin Ridge Cider and Duxbury Cider), Georgian Hills Vineyards (featuring Ardiel Cider House), Thornbury Village Cider House, The Cheese Gallery (featuring Spy Cider House), and Coffin Ridge Forbidden Family of Ciders. Get your passport stamped at four or more stops and enter to win great prizes including $300 in gift cards for local cider houses.

Hop on the ‘Cider Rider’!

Let someone else do the driving. Visit four Passport stops on the Cider Rider bus tours provided by Ace Transportation Group. Reserve your seat early as space will fill up fast.

Ciderfest on the Apple Pie Trail is an exciting way to get to know the ciders of the region and the best of its apple-inspired cuisine, all while immersed in the summertime beauty of the Niagara Escarpment.
