New Zealand Cider Festival returns to Nelson for 2022

The annual New Zealand Cider Festival is pleased to announce that the event will be back in Nelson for the 2022 Festival. The date is set for Saturday 12th November and will be once again held at Founders Heritage Park.

Festival Director, Shelley Haring says “After sadly having to first postpone the 2021 Festival, which was due to be staged in the Hawke’s Bay for the first time and then subsequently having to cancel it due to the red traffic light, we are optimistic and looking forward to planning for the Nelson festival in November”.

“The ongoing success of the Cider Festival means that we will continue with the planned location sharing arrangement with Hawke’s Bay. Rotating between these two locations will bring cider to as wide an audience as possible, showcasing New Zealand’s two main cider growing regions and will help ensure the longevity and impact of the event in support of our thriving cider industry”.

The Nelson festival will conincide with the annual NZ Cider Awards, festival attendees will get to try the 2022 award winning Ciders and also enjoy an exciting line-up of all day entertainment, Cider workshops with industry professionals and see who is crowned Amateur Cider Maker of the Year!

The festival is a celebration of all things Cider and is an event for the whole family. Pair your Cider with local artisan food and relax within the beautiful setting of Founders Heritage Park, its a Cider Lovers dream!
