Wassail - A Winter Tradition to Bless the Dragon's Head Cider Orchard
Wassailing is an old Winter tradition of blessing the orchard, to ensure that the trees wake up from their Winter slumber and produce a good harvest in the year to come. At Dragon’s Head Cider, we are hoping to create our own new Wassailing traditions with our community by our side in the orchard.
Tickets are $45 and available pre-sale only through Brown Paper Tickets. Children 12 and under are free. Tickets are limited.
Your ticket will provide you with admission to the event, food from Matt Dillon of Sitka & Spurce and Old Chaser Farm, and one drink ticket good for a glass of cider (for those 21+) or a non-alcoholic beverage. Additional cider drink tickets will be available for purchase.
This event will happen rain or shine. The orchard must be blessed either way! So please be prepared. Wear warm winter clothing, good footwear for the orchard, and bring an umbrella if it’s raining.
