Sixth annual event series designed to educate and celebrate all things cider around the state and beyond

PORTLAND – (February 1, 2017) – The Northwest Cider Association announces the sixth annual Oregon Cider Week, celebrating all things cider between June 15-25, 2017. This 11-day celebration invites everyone, from cider makers to chefs, to showcase Northwest cider in a variety of special events, featured menus, happy hours, tap takeovers and more. Oregon Cider Week’s largest event provides a chance to sample more than 150 selections from around the world at Cider Summit Portland on June 16-18.

This highlight event is then followed by a bevy of beverage bashes, ranging from educational “how-to” workshops at Oregon Museum of Science & Technology (OMSI), to a cider bike tour around Portland, and so much more. On average, Oregon Cideries work together to coordinate over 100 cider-themed events throughout the state of Oregon.
