With 16 cideries and counting, Hood River Valley’s hard cider scene is exploding. These craft cidermakers source the apples, pears and other fruits from the 440+ local orchardists, creating make ciders that truly give you a taste of Hood River, and place the region at the forefront of the new national hard cider movement.
Now in its second year, the Hood River Hard-Pressed Cider Fest gives seasoned and novice cider drinkers alike the chance to sample cider from Hood River County’s very own cider makers, as well as a variety of additional Northwest cideries. With 20 cideries participating, with more than 30 ciders on tap. The daylong event also features local food vendors, produce and arts vendors, a kid’s area and a line-up of local music, from bluegrass to classic rock – guaranteeing a great time for the whole family.
We look forward to the 4th Annual Hard-Pressed Cider Fest!
