Town and Mountain Realty is a proud sponsor of the Fourth annual CiderFest, which will take place Saturday, October 15th from 1-5pm. The mid-October event date, slightly earlier than the November event date of years past, will coincide with the peak fall colors in Asheville, providing the perfect fall setting for this year's festival.
In addition to the new event date, this year's CiderFest will be held at a new venue, the event space at Salvage Station, located beside the French Broad River just off I-26.
Small bites from a variety of craft food vendors will be available throughout the day. A festival favorite, WNC Cheese Trail, will be offering samples from local creameries, and several local farms will be offering samples of apple pies, jellies and jams, and other apple products. Other food sample offerings will include artisanal cheeses, caramels, and baked goods. For a full list of food vendors, see here.
CiderFest will also feature local bands and buskers roaming throughout the venue providing live music for festival-goers to enjoy while in line for food and beverage samples or while perusing the local arts-and-crafts vendors. More information on the music and craft vendors can be found here.
Other entertainment will include community-focused workshops such as educational cidermaking seminars, and an interactive kids zone featuring hands-on educational green-living activities and eco-friendly crafts. More information on kids zone activities can be found here.
