Join us for the 2nd Annual
Saturday, May 2, 2015
Join us for an American take on the timeless European custom of ‘wassailing’ where people gather at an orchard and recite or sing carols to promote a good cider apple harvest to come. People in the act of ‘wassailing’ will sing an drink to awaken the cider apple trees, scare away evil spirits in the orchard and toast the health of the trees to ensure a plentiful harvest of fruit in the fall.
Here’s to thee, old apple tree,
Frecon’s Cidery’s Wassail won’t require you to actually sing carols (unless you want to!) but it will involve the best of local bluegrass, improvisational rock, jazz and blues, all performed live in the orchard. Plus, together we’ll celebrate the release of the cidery’s hard ciders and the growing season to come! The event will feature the entire Frecon’s Cidery portfolio of ciders, plus food from local food truck favorites!
New This Year! We'll be running a contest to crown a couple the Wassail King and Queen who will receive a year's supply of cider! Check out the contest page.
The event will take place outdoors, under tents, nestled into the orchards of Frecon Farms, rain or shine (no refunds). A special offer is available for advanced sales which includes a souvenir pint glass and 3 drink tickets for $20! This offer can be purchased on the "buy tickets" page!
