Rescheduled due to rain bands from Hurricane Michael, the inaugural Rosslyn Cider Fest is now happening this Thursday, October 18. Central Place Plaza in Rosslyn will host eight cideries to bring you the quintessential taste of fall.
Apples are everywhere right now! Head out to Rosslyn this Thursday to try them in their boozy adult beverage form — cider. Food trucks and live entertainment join eight tasting stations for an evening of delicious fun. This event was originally scheduled for October 11, but all previously purchased tickets will be honored for this new date. People who have already signed up for the mini apple pie-eating contest are also still registered.
WHERE: Central Place Plaza | 1735 North Lynn Street in Arlington
WHEN: Thursday, October 18, 2018 | 5-8 p.m.
Tickets are $10 for each 8-sample tasting ticket ad you must be 21+ to sample the alcoholic ciders. Admission to Cider Fest is FREE.
The cideries participating in this first-ever Cider Fest are Bold Rock, Winchester Ciderworks, Cobbler Mountain Cellars, Potter's, Austin Eastciders, Original Sin, Crispin, and Strongbow. Live music will be provided by a local band, Two Ton Twig, which combines folk, bluegrass, Appalachian, and other musical influences to create a unique sound. Sample some of their music here.
Getting to Cider Fest by Metro may be your best bet; the event will be just over a block from the Rosslyn Metro Station. Take your chances with street parking or head for one of the nearby pay garages.
