ABOUT
CIDER SWIG

Cider Swig combines our commitment to community and the environment. Featuring PNW ciders, the festival highlights our region's agricultural heritage, reinforces community friendships, promotes local businesses, agricultural and environmental organizations, and showcases regional talent throughout the day! 

The Annual Cider Swig celebration returns! While a bit different due to the current safety guidelines and requirements, we are excited to offer Cider Swig Pick-Up Tasting Kits!

As much as we would love to be celebrating our 7th annual event with you it’s just not possible this year. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t get your cider fill! We’ve been diligently working to put on Cider Swig: Pick-Up Edition. We are partnering with several of our longstanding Pacific Northwest-based cider vendors to create two "festival tasting kit" options. While we can’t be sipping and enjoying together, we hope you can enjoy a bit of festival cheer from the comfort of your own home!

Come get your swig on Saturday and Sunday, September 26th & 27th, from 12 PM to 4 PM each day. Saturday kit pick-up will take place at LeMay America's Car Museum; Sunday kit pick-up will be located at Uptown Gig Harbor in the IMAX parking lot. When you purchase your kit, please specify your pick-up location. 

MISSION.

Cider Swig combines our commitment to community and the environment. Featuring PNW ciders, the festival highlights our region's agricultural heritage, reinforces community friendships, promotes local businesses, agricultural and environmental organizations, and showcases regional talent throughout the day! Proceeds benefit the Lu Winsor Environmental grants program, which provides annual grants to area schools and organizations within the KGI watershed for projects focused on water quality, environmental education, watershed health, conservation and restoration activities.

THE CIDERS.

2020 EDITION TO-GO KITS.

2020 Cider Swig: Pick-Up Edition will feature 18 cideries, 21 cider varieties, and three add-on options presented by Sky River Mead and Heritage Distillery.

If it was a normal year, Cider Swig would take place on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, and continue to rank as one of Washington's largest cider-centered, family-fun events.

While this will not be the family-friendly event that we usually put on, it will still feature our beloved Pacific Northwest cideries. We hope you will join us in the annual celebration!
