5th Annual Hood River Hard Cider Fest
By: Mary Pellegrini
Craft Cider makers source the apples, pears and other fruits from the 440+ Hood River Valley orchardists, creating ciders that truly give you a taste of The Hood, and place the region at the forefront of the new national hard cider movement.
At the Hood River Hard-Pressed Cider Fest sample cider from Hood River County’s very own cider makers, as well as a variety of additional Northwest cideries. More than twenty-five cideries will be participating, with more than 50 ciders on tap.
Saturday, April 21 at 12 PM - 7 PM
The daylong event also features a lineup of local music, and a kids’ area, complete with a bouncy house. Spring showers aren’t a problem, as the tasting area takes place in a covered hall. Blossoms are starting to open. Should be a beautiful weekend in the Hood River Valley
Our Chinook Suite is still available for the weekend.
