Though it is not required, the event suggests bringing out one’s innermost ‘Belling-hipster’. “Our organization is deeply connected to the cider industry within Bellingham, so creating this event was our way of bringing cider lovers and local businesses together,” says Cider Coordinator, Kari Humphreys. “We are so thrilled that the cider community is coming together to share their craft and benefit a great cause!” Local cideries attending the event include Schilling Hard Cider, Honey Moon, 2 Towns Ciderhouse, Renaissance Orchards, Lost Giants Cider Co., Swift Cider, Bellingham Cider Co., Farmstrong Brewing’s Ragged & Right Cider Project and more. Each drink ticket comes with one 8oz taster glass and three 8oz drink tickets. “We’re also pretty excited about the activities we’ll have going during the event. We’ve got field games, a photobooth, and even outdoor living rooms that we’re calling ‘Apple Lounges’.” says Board President, Jenny Schmidt. “With the fall season approaching, the first annual Sippin’ on Cider Festival will surely be an event to remember.” For more information, please visit the Sippin’ on Cider Facebook event.
