The Celebration of Cider and Music Festival is BACK for its second year! Building on our popular craft beer festival in July, we will showcase hard cider tastings along with several musical acts at multiple stages throughout the event.

With paid admission (or an active membership or season pass) to Old Sturbridge Village our guests (who are 21 and older and have shown a valid ID) will be given coupons to sample offerings (2 oz. pour) from 6 of their favorite ciders participating at the festival. They will also have the opportunity to purchase additional sample tickets or full pours of each of the ciders featured in the festival.

*Those with free passes to the Village and Sturbridge residents can enter the Village for free but must purchase sample tickets if they wish to sample ciders.

While guests enjoy the ciders and tunes they can also tour our historic village learning the importance of cider in early New England and visit our working 19th-century cider mill. While only those 21 and older are permitted to sample hard cider, all ages are welcome! There will be plenty of activities and demonstrations for guests of all ages.

PLEASE NOTE: The Village will be open special hours on this date: 11:00 am to 6:00 pm

Check back at a later date for a list of participating cideries and musical artists!
