After a successful sold-out event in 2017 The New Zealand Cider Festival is back and better than ever for its third consecutive year in New Zealand’s Cider capital, Nelson. Held on 3rd November at Founders Heritage Park it will coincide again with the NZ Cider Awards on 2nd November, but this year will also include ‘Fringe Events for Cider Lovers' from October 31st through to November 4th.
Early bird tickets are on sale from 1 June.
With an exciting line up of entertainment, celebrity speakers and kids’ activities planned, it is set to be a highlight on many calendars, some for the third time! Cider popularity has doubled over the last 5-6 years with over 1 in 4 consumers now including Cider in their shopping - but there are still over 1/3 of New Zealanders who have never tried Cider! The NZ Cider Festival offers the opportunity to try a wide range of Ciders created by Cider makers from all over NZ in one handy and scenic central location in Nelson.
With a great selection of top NZ Cider makers already on board, including Gold Sponsor Old Mout Cider, locals The Sprig and Fern Brewery, McCashins and The Mussel Inn, plus 2017 winners of ‘The World’s Best Cider’; Zeffer Cider Co, event goers and Cider enthusiasts are in for yet another exciting and memorable Cider experience.
The Festival is a celebration of all things Cider and an event for the whole family!
The team at Nelson Venues & Events is proud to bring you the 3rd NZ Cider Festival and can't wait for November to roll around! In the mean time, stay tuned for regular updates, ticket competitions and general Cider related goodness!
