With nine cideries and counting, Hood River Valley’s hard cider scene is exploding. These craft cidermakers source the apples, pears and other fruits from the 440+ local orchardists, creating make ciders that truly give you a taste of Hood River, and place the region at the forefront of the new national hard cider movement. Now in its third year, the Hood River Hard-Pressed Cider Fest gives seasoned and novice cider drinkers alike the chance to sample cider from Hood River County’s very own cider makers, as well as a variety of additional Northwest cideries. More than 20 cideries will be participating, with more than 30 ciders on tap. The daylong event also features local food vendors, produce and arts vendors, a kid’s area and a line-up of local music, from bluegrass to classic rock – guaranteeing a great time for the whole family. And, just a friendly reminder, pets are not allowed at the event.
