2019 NZ Cider Festival

Our mantra for the 4th NZ Cider Festival was ‘you can still drink Cider and dance in the rain’!


Over 2500 cider lovers enjoyed the festivities at Founders Heritage Park on 16th November 2019

This year saw our biggest number yet of Cider Makers attending the festival, with 18 in total, ranging from bottom of the south to top of the north island.

Save the date for 2020 – 21 November, its going to our biggest yet!

The New Zealand Cider Festival is a family-friendly event. Under 18s are free when accompanied by a paying adult.
You must be over 18 to consume alcohol and legal photo identification may be required.

The NZ Cider Festival has received sponsorship funding for this year’s event from the Nelson Events Marketing & Development Programme, which is funded by the Nelson City Council. The Programme’s objective is to stimulate Nelson City’s economy in the shoulder and off seasons by bringing new spending through visitors coming to Nelson for distinct events.
