The New Zealand Cider Festival
The New Zealand Cider Festival is back for its second year in New Zealand’s Cider capital, Nelson. It will be held on 4 November at Founders Heritage Park, to coincide with the NZ Cider Awards. Early bird tickets are on sale from 1 June.
Described by National Geographic as “heaven for Cider seekers”, Nelson produces 60% of the country’s Cider due to its high concentration of cideries.
