The Hudson Valley Cider Festival 2017 will be held tomorrow, June 24 at Barton Orchards, 63 Apple Tree Lane in Poughquag from 2 pm – 6pm, 1 pm – 6 pm if you are lucky enough to have VIP tickets. There will be over 50 cideries, both local and national, offering up samples and ciders you can buy to enjoy at home.

And even though it is a cider festival, there will be more than just cider. We will be featuring several craft beers this year. There will also be delicious food from culinary experts and live entertainment all day. We even have helicopter rides, believe it or not. And Barton Orchards offers beautiful grounds, and delicious baked goods are always available. What a great way to welcome summer.
