Lower East Cider Festival

  • Orchard Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

Bring the Orchards back to Orchard Street!

Our second annual festival showcases cider makers and apple growers from the Finger Lakes, Hudson Valley, Western New York and NYC who will be pouring samples and selling their wares alongside pay-as-you-go cider-friendly dishes from area restaurants and shops.

There is no cost to attend the event. If you wish to sample ciders, you must pick up a 21+ wristband during the event at stations at Orchard and Houston Street, Orchard and Delancey Street, and in front of Wassail (162 Orchard Street).

Wassail will be hosting the New York Cider Association’s Fermentation Station, a 21+, pay-as-you-go experience outside their restaurant serving select pours to demonstrate qualities such as tannin, acidity, sugar, and aroma and how they express themselves in a finished, fermented product. 

Some of the participating restaurants selling food:
Delaware and Hudson
Pain D'Avignon
The Queens Kickshaw
Arancini Bros
