    Cider Week GR

    April 17-22, 2017

    Cider Week GRMichigan is America’s second largest producer of apples – and the majority are grown on family farms stretching north from Grand Rapids. So it’s no coincidence that we have so many skilled cider makers in the area, plying their trade at an increasing number of excellent craft cideries. You’ll find their lip-smacking libations in local stores, bars, restaurants, tasting rooms – and straight from the source at cider mills.

    Cider Week GR celebrates the local cider scene with seven days of events and activities culminating with a cider festival on downtown’s Blue Bridge. We’ll announce more events leading up to the celebration – check back often!

    Cider Week GR coincides with the 12th Annual Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition, the world’s largest and most respected cider judging, to be held in Grand Rapids April 19-22. Come join in the fun of Cider Week GR and rub elbows with the planet’s foremost cider experts!
