Franklin County CiderDays
November 1 - November 3
We are excited to present the 25th annual CiderDays on the first full weekend of November. CiderDays is an annual community celebration of all things apple in beautiful Franklin County, Massachusetts. 2019 marks our 25th year with tours, cidermaking and tastings, workshops and much more in orchards and venues county-wide from Ashfield, Deerfield, Turners Falls, Shelburne Falls, and Colrain to New Salem and the towns in between. Whether you are a cider aficionado (hard or sweet), make your own cider, are an orchardist, like hanging out in bucolic orchards, or just enjoy soaking up all the goodness of autumn in New England, CiderDays is your event!
There is a charge for some of the events but many of the workshops and activities at the Shelburne Buckland Community Center and at local orchards are completely FREE.
An event schedule and tickets for tastings and workshops are available online at ciderdays.org. Advance purchase is recommended; tickets usually sell out.
CiderDays has grown in the past 25 years into an internationally recognized event that draws visitors from the United States, Canada and Europe. Last year an estimated 4,000 people attended.
The event began in a parking lot in Colrain where people brought their home ciders to taste out of the back of their pickup trucks, and now, 25 years later, there are not only tastings but more than 50 events associated with CiderDays.
