Hard Pressed Cider Fest
Join us for our inaugural Hard-Pressed Cider Fest on Saturday, Nov. 5 and Sunday, Nov. 6. The festival will be an indoor/outdoor event at our NEW Cider Shed with apple-inspired food and beverage samples from local restaurants, a variety of retailers for shopping, live music and a Cider Donut eating contest for the public. This festival is free to attend and open to the public with food and beverage available for purchase.
Eckert’s Hard-Pressed Cider Festival will offer live music and entertainment both days of the festival. Chefs and area restaurants will join to share samples of items made with Eckert’s apples, apple cider or apple butter, like the fan-favorite Mini Apple Cream Puffs from Yolklore and desserts from Sugar High Bakery. There will also be beverage tastings from local beer and wine experts, including 1220 Spirits, 4 Hands Brewing Co. and Stumpy’s Spirits Distillery.
Shopping will be set up outside both days of the festival, and include a selection of offerings, such as: bath and beauty products, hot cocoa bombs, candles, handmade jewelry, children’s clothes, wooden ornaments, crafts, pottery and more.
