7th Annual Hood River Hard-Pressed Cider Fest
Sat, Apr 18 at 12pm
Hood River Valley’s hard cider scene is exploding. These craft cider makers source the apples, pears and other fruits from the 440+ local orchardists, creating ciders that truly give you a taste of Hood River, and place the region at the forefront of the new national hard cider movement.
Now in its seventh year, the Hood River Hard-Pressed Cider Fest gives seasoned and novice cider drinkers alike the chance to sample cider from Hood River County’s very own cider makers, as well as a variety of additional Northwest cideries. More than twenty-five cideries will be participating, with more than 50 ciders on tap.
The daylong event also features a lineup of local music, and a kids’ area, guaranteeing a great time for the whole family. Spring showers aren’t a problem, as the tasting area takes place in a covered hall.
Under 21, free entry. Dog Sitting, provided by Kind Animal Services will be offered for a fee, outside the event.
Shuttles from downtown Hood River will be available
