Franklin County CiderDays

Now that life in the pandemic is becoming more "normal," we are beginning the process to reinvigorate the apple and hard cider festival you know and love - CiderDays! Plans are afoot to present a full slate of activities on the first weekend of November for the 29th (!) incarnation of this beloved event - November 3 - 5, 2023

Right now, a dedicated group of cidermakers, orchardists, industry folks, and cider aficionados from Franklin County and beyond are hard at work to produce a thoroughly entertaining and educational event. And the salon, whether one large one or multiples in various locations will be a feature (!), as will orchard talks and events, cider pairing lunches and dinners, and more! We'll provide additional info just as soon as you have it, but for now...


In the meantime, check out our video (thanks, TOLD Video!) to see what makes CiderDays a can't miss event. And you'll find photos and videos from CiderDays past on our Facebook page. And if you want to be notified of all the events to come, please join our email list

What is CiderDays?

CiderDays is an annual community celebration of all things apple in beautiful Franklin County, Massachusetts. 2023 marks our 29th year with tours, cidermaking and tastings, workshops and much more in orchards and venues county-wide from Greenfield, Deerfield, and Turners Falls to Shelburne Falls, Colrain, Heath and the towns in between. Whether you are a cider aficianado (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 will be a charge for some events during CiderDays weekend, but many activities will be completely FREE.
