Winter Cider Fest @CORE
4th of August 2018
 5 pm to 10 pm


We’re getting the wood ready for our orchard bonfire! Toast mulled cider with us to the health of the trees to ensure a good harvest, and as fable has it – to scare away all those nasty, evil spirits! 

44 Degreez add their mix of funk to the mix to get you dancing, and hearty pork & cider ragout and apple crumble will warm you to the CORE.

Don your medieval cozzy (with a prize for the best dressed), bring your pots, pans and anything that will make one heck of a racket, and wassail with us: 

"Here's to the tree, old apple tree, that blooms well, bears well.
Hats full, caps full, three bushel bags full, an' all under one tree. hurrah! hurrah!"

The more the merrier, come toast mulled cider with us!

Tickets are $55 adults (all inclusive of festivities, one serve of food and one mulled cider)
$30 kids (includes one apple juice and one serve of food)
