Hard-Pressed Cider Festival in the Hood River Valley

Hood River Valley’s hard cider scene is exploding, with nine cideries and counting. These craft cidermakers source the apples, pears and other fruits from the 440+ local orchardists, creating ciders that truly give you a taste of Hood River, and place the region at the forefront of the new national hard cider movement.  Now in its second year, the Hood River Hard-Pressed Cider Fest gives seasoned and novice cider drinkers alike the chance to sample cider from Hood River County’s very own cider makers, as well as a variety of additional Northwest cideries.  More than 20 cideries will be participating, with more than 30 ciders on tap.  The daylong event also features local food vendors, produce and arts vendors, a kid’s area and a line-up of local music, from bluegrass to classic rock – guaranteeing a great time for the whole family
