6th Annual CIDER SWIG - the Greater Peninsula Cider Festival

Saturday, September 28, 2019, 12:00 PM

THE CIDERS RETURN FOR THE 6th ANNUAL CIDER SWIG! The Cider Swig returns to Gig Harbor with dozens of regional ciders to sip, live music and entertainment on two stages, the annual "Battle of the Pie" Contest, apple launching, award winning delectable "curbside cuisine" by area chefs, restaurants and food trucks, the Kids Applet Drop-off Center, and more! Northwest cidermakers will present over 100 ciders (and related libations). The popular Apple Carnivàle returns - replete with performers, arts and crafts, dancers, an array of carnival games, inflatable obstacle course, sticky wall, face painting, apple launching, demonstrations, and other fun and games. Ciders presented for sampling in the Cider Garden, sponsored by UPTOWN Gig Harbor, will be for sale under the Cider Tent, so you can take your favorite ciders home to enjoy! Come Get your Swig On! Ticket includes: 5 drink tokens, 6 oz. festival glass, and access to all live music and entertainment, food, the Apple Carnivàle Zone, and all other festival activities.  Additional cider tokens are available at festival. ID is required to enter the Cider Garden. Must be 21+  to enter the Cider Garden. **Each year the Cider Swig brings thousands from around the region to enjoy ciders, great food, live music and family fun. And, each year the Cider Swig sells out! Advance ticket purchase is strongly encouraged.** OTHER FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS This is an accessible family-fun and dog-friendly event. Dogs are required to be on leash and under the control of their owners at all times.
