CiderDays is just around the corner (Friday, November 2-Sunday, November 4) and we need support to help celebrate the oldest gathering in the country of producers and those who appreciate hard cider.
We had such a good time at Unity Park in Turners Falls, right next to the beautiful Connecticut River we decided to return! Our two hundred foot, heated and lighted event tent will once again hold 45+ producers featuring ciders from across the US and Europe.
CiderDays kicks off with a special event on Friday night at Hawks and Reed in downtown Greenfield featuring renowned culinary genius, Johnny Spero of the Columbia Room in DC and owner of Reverie Restaurant. Inspired from time in Basque Country, Johnny will be creating four small plates paired with four perfectly matched ciders. Plus we still have our workshops at the Shelburne Buckland Community Center on Saturday and Sunday tastings at the Deerfield Community Center.
We hope you can support this celebration of Franklin County orchards and agriculture by donating a few hours of your time. Below is a list of events, with dates, times, locations and tasks that need volunteers. Please take a look and let us know.
