Event Details


The 2014 Australian Cider Festival will be a celebration of all things cider, showcasing high quality cider and perry, live entertainment and cider matched food in the gracious surrounds of Ormond Hall at The Village Melbourne.

This is the first time the Australian Cider Festival will be held in Victoria, and presents a fantastic opportunity to sample a diverse range of ciders and perry from 30 local and international producers. Plus you can discuss and learn about the products directly from the cider makers. The festival is perfectly suited to cider enthusiasts, amateur cider makers, craft beer and wine lovers and locals looking for a great day out.

Ormond Hall will open its doors at 1pm each day,with cider sampling until 6pm. Throughout the day, festival goers can make their way to The Village Brasserie for live entertainment and cider matched food offerings, including a pork belly slider with apple relish cider, pulled pork po boys, panseared scallops and pork belly and more specials on the day.

There is a limit of 800 attendees on each day of the festival, so you’ll need to get in quick to secure a ticket!

Tickets are $20 per person per day, and the ticket price includes 20 x 50mL complementary tastings, a tasting glass, program and tasting notes.  Additional tasting tokens will be available for $1 each.

To complement the weekend-long festival, The Village Melbourne Brasserie will host a Cider Producers Forum on Saturday 11 October 2014 from 10am – 11.30am.
