ABOUT THE NZ CIDER FESTIVAL
Cider is at the heart of the Nelson region; with over 50% of the industry’s Cider being produced by Nelson Cider makers, it is the ideal location to host the annual New Zealand Cider Festival!
Not a Cider drinker? Those not sold on this refreshing beverage will be treated to a selection of quality wine, a range of non-alcoholic beverages and selected craft beer available from our sponsors.
Music & Entertainment
Our festival is not just about cider! A selection of great entertainment will form the framework for a family day out, including excellent music, educational talks, tastings, and the popular GK Events kids entertainment area.
The New Zealand Cider Festival creates a relaxed environment that is kid-friendly. Back by popular demand, a range of children’s entertainment will be provided by the GK Events team to ensure kids are well entertained as you soak up the atmosphere of the day.
The event continues to work towards zero waste by ensuring food and drinks are supplied in re-usable or recyclable/ compostable containers, including the festival’s souvenir sponsored glass.
