Festival Info

Come join us for an amazing showcase of hard cider at the Virginia Cider Festival in Fredericksburg, VA!

At the Virginia Cider Festival you and your friends will be surrounded by hard ciders from all across the country.  The event will also feature even more Virginia Cider this year from cideries like Cobbler Mountain, Potter’s, Winchester Cider Works and Bold Rock!

We currently have a list of over 25 Cider producers, and we will be pouring over 50 ciders in 2019!!!

We will also have local live music on the Safford of Fredericksburg stage for your listening pleasure. Be sure to check the weather for what to wear. The event will take place rain or shine (no refunds). Don’t forget to bring your appetite for great food that will be available to purchase from local Fredericksburg food establishments.

Parking is FREE and Plentiful. The Fredericksburg Fairgrounds is located about 2 miles off exits from I-95.

A sell-out is expected so buy your tickets early. Once the event sells out, no additional tickets will be available. General admission tickets are $30 in advance and $40 the day of the festival. General admission ticket holders will receive a 5-ounce tasting glass, made available by the tasting glass sponsor, Safford of Fredericksburg. Designated driver (DD) tickets are also available for $10 and will include a $5 food voucher coupon but DD ticket holders are not permitted to drink any alcohol.

Doors open at 11:00 AM. Last call will be 4:30 PM.

The event will be held rain or shine. We have 2 buildings and a pavilion that we will utilize if need be.

No one will be given a festival glass without valid photo ID (no exceptions)! Proper identification is the responsibility of the attendee. Failure to present proper, valid photo identification (license or passport) will result in denial of entry with no refund offered.

Select distilleries will be on site to educate festival attendees about their product.  Select distilleries will have products available for sample and sale.  Purchased products from distilleries may not be opened or consumed on site.
