Cider Summit Seattle, the city’s premier cider event, is moving down the street. The 10th annual cider festival is moving to Lake Union Park, next to the Museum of History and Industry. The two-day event happens on Friday, September 6th and Saturday, September 7th. Tickets are on sale now. More info about your ticket options is shared below.
“Cider Summit annually exposes thousands of cider lovers and the cider curious to some of the industry’s most unique products,” explained event co-founder, Alan Shapiro. “We’re thrilled to celebrate our 10th anniversary by continuing that mission and also add a few surprises to thank our guests for helping us reach 10 years.”
This year Cider Summit Seattle features over 150 ciders, meads, and cider cocktails including regional favorites and international classics. Some of the industry’s leading cidermakers will attend the event to inform and guide guests through the tastings.

Festivalgoers can vote for their favorite via text, with the winners announced at the conclusion of the event.
