BC Cider Week

In its third year, BC Cider Week moves from October to the spring time! The new dates are April 28-May 7, 2017. Some of the reasons; It’s a great intro to the dominant cider season; summer! And this also allows more cider producers to be able to participate. Many of the small BC cideries will ferment their cider for months, and with the apple harvest being in the fall, their cider isn’t ready until the spring. Mark your calendars now, and if you like cider, come join us!
