3rd Annual CIDER SWIG ~ the Greater Peninsula Cider Festival

  • Sehmel Homestead Park 10123 78th Avenue Northwest Gig Harbor, WA, 98332 United States (map)

The 3rd annual Greater Peninsula Cider Festival (a/k/a CIDER SWIG) celebration returns to Gig Harbor with over 80 ciders to sip, 5 live bands on two stages, award winning fare, the 1st annual Apple Pie Contest, bigger and better Kids Apple Zone, and more!

Come get your swig on from 12:00 to 5:00 pm, Saturday, September 24th at the beautiful 98-acre Sehmel Homestead Park - the perfect setting to take in the last days of summer with family and friends, sit back and listen to music, launch some apples and have some serious cider sippin fun!

The 3rd annual Cider Swig is looking like another great day with 80+ regional ciders and a apple cider whiskey to boot. And, as always, we will include both sampling and sales (for off premises consumption).

And, remember the Cider Swig is an accessible and family-fun event. The Kids Apple Zone will have a variety of games and activities for those under 21, and a drop-off for children under 12. There will be cider-centric arts, demonstrations/talks/tips, and more by area experts, as well as works by area artists in the Cider Swig Gallery.

Gig Harbor is located in the beautiful South Puget Sound, along State Route 16, about 6 miles from its origin at I-5, over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge…. about 10 minutes from Tacoma, 45 minutes from Seattle, and an easy drive from the Olympic Peninsula!
