This year, there is an opportunity to get some of your favorite regional ciders in July! We have teamed up with some of your favorite Northwest cideries to create three amazing tasting kits, replete with tasting glasses, and more! There will also be take-away meal options from our local barbeque Come Get Your Swig On…Summer Style! Celebrating the 8th year of CIDER SWIG, we’re changing it up with an opportunity to get some of your favorite regional ciders, in July! SUMMER SWIG a Pick-Up Edition will take place July 10th and 11th. At its core, the CIDER SWIG – as with all community events, festivals, and fairs – is a people-gathering event, and the more people the better. And, while we are beginning to return to our post-pandemic daily lives, we are committed to taking important precautions to ensure that events as CIDER SWIG return safely to our community. The pandemic brought about the first Pick-Up Edition festival that featuring “tasting kits”. As we enter changed conditions in 2021, we are planning two CIDER SWIG's this year! · SUMMER SWIG, July 10-11, will be a Pick-Up event with a Cider Sales Tent where you can stock-up on your favorite regional ciders! · CIDER SWIG, September 25, will be more like the festival you know and love. We have again teamed with some of your favorite Northwest cider producers to create three amazing SUMMER SWIG: Pick-Up Edition Tasting Kit options, replete with tasting glasses, and more! And, no festival (even a pick-up), would be the same without food and music! So, to round out your SUMMER SWIG experience, we have partnered with local barbecue restaurant, BBQ2U, to provide awesome take-away meals options that you can order in advance and pick-up with your festival tasting kits. The Cider Sales Tent will make its return at SUMMER SWIG 2021! Here, you will be able to purchase additional select regional ciders to take home and enjoy. And, we'll have music spinning throughout the day, to keep up the festive! Each kit includes a mix of unique PNW ciders, 2 custom tasting glasses, fun tchotchkes from participating cidermakers, a $5 discount voucher for Cider Swig 2021! ... and a few extras from local restaurants and merchants! The festival is a critical regional event, providing support to about a dozen area nonprofit organizations working in our watershed annually, we just had to find a way to do more to support them. So, while we won't be sipping and enjoying the day together at SUMMER SWIG, we hope you will join us in solidarity and enjoy a bit of festival cheer from the comfort of your own home.
