Although the festival is only going on its 3rd year, it has grown organically through word of mouth to over 50 breweries, wineries, and cideries. Some of the biggest breweries in the country will attend this year’s event, from well-known names like Founder’s and Ballast Point, to new comers like Fillmore 13 of Pontiac. “We love that this is a predominantly “Michigan-made” festival and that it’s not exclusive to only craft beer like many others are. As the second largest apple producing state in the world, we take pride in our state’s ciders” says Marketing Manager, Chelsea Iadipaolo.
The festival has not only added more craft beverages, but more outdoor games too. The Fowling Warehouse is providing boards for free play all day, along with free yoga classes for ticket holders both Saturday and Sunday. The Silent Disco tent is a crowd favorite, and with live music all day, there’s something for everyone.
Tickets are available at the door, rain or shine, must be 21 or over to attend. Designated driver tickets also online at www.ciderdayze.com.
