Franklin County CiderDays

We are beyond thrilled to be presenting the 25th Anniversary CiderDays Celebration, happening throughout Franklin County November 1-3, 2019.

What is CiderDays?
CiderDays is an annual community celebration of all things apple in beautiful Franklin County, Massachusetts. 2019 marks our 25th Anniversary with tours, cidermaking and tastings, workshops and much more in orchards and venues county-wide from Ashfield, Deerfield, Turners Falls, Shelburne Falls, and Colrain to New Salem and the towns in between. Whether you are a cider aficionado (hard or sweet), make your own cider, are an orchardist, like hanging out in bucolic orchards, or just enjoy soaking up all the goodness of autumn in New England, CiderDays is your event!

There is a charge for some of the events but many of the workshops and activities at the Shelburne Buckland Community Center and at local orchards are completely FREE.

MORE INFO & A FULL SCHEDULE IS ON THE WEBSITE.
