The KEEN Cider Fest

  • Gold Buckle Room 901 East 7th Avenue Ellensburg, WA, 98926 United States (map)

Join us on Saturday, October 7 for the first annual KEEN Cider Fest fundraiser featuring ample tastings of hard apple cider, perry and cherry cider too, along with tasty food, amazing live music, and more! Tickets are $30 (early bird) and $35 after October 1st. Designated driver tickets are only $15. Camping is available onsite for $35 (hookup) and $20 (dry camp).

As the largest annual fundraiser for the nonprofit Kittitas Environmental Education Network, this fun new event will be held during the peak of fall colors and the height of the harvest in Central Washington on Saturday, Oct. 7 in the Gold Buckle Room at the Kittitas Valley Event Center at 901 East 7th Avenue, just outside of downtown Ellensburg, WA.

The first annual KEEN Cider Fest is expected to draw a sell-out crowd to sample sips from a large mix of local pourers. In addition to tasting cider, guests can enjoy bites of artisanal food including local cheeses, baked goods, and other treats.

A limited number of VIT (Very Important Taster) tickets will be sold. VIT's gain early access to the event and will have the opportunity to speak to our cideries and learn all about their business and their craft.

The first 100 event attendees will receive a complimentary KEEN Cider Fest tasting glass.

Proceeds from the KEEN Cider Fest directly support our work to engage learners of all ages with our environment. Funds will specifically support our summer nature camp for pre-school to 8th graders, and our project to construct the Yakima Canyon Interpretive Center.

We anticipate that the event will sell out early! Space is limited and people are encouraged to buy tickets early.
