HardpressciderfestHood River Valley’s hard cider scene is exploding. These craft cider makers source the apples, pears and other fruits from the 440+ local orchardists, creating ciders that truly give you a taste of Hood River, and place the region at the forefront of the new national hard cider movement.

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. More than twenty-five cideries will be participating, with more than 50 ciders on tap.

The daylong event also features a lineup of local music, and a kid’s activity area – guaranteeing a great time for the whole family. Spring showers aren’t a problem, as the tasting area takes place in a covered hall.

And, just a friendly reminder, pets are not allowed at the event.
