Southwest Cider Festival


Arizona craft cideries are joining together to host an inaugural Southwest Cider Festival on Saturday, November 10, where people can sample and learn about craft ciders from Arizona, California and other neighboring states. The event will be at Cider Corps in Downtown Mesa. Guests will have the chance to sample cider from more than a dozen craft cideries from Arizona, California, Texas, Colorado, Washington and New York as well as enjoy bites from local food trucks and live music. A portion of all tickets sales will go to Operation Homefront, a non-profit organization supporting military families in our communities. 

 The Southwest Cider Festival will take place on Saturday, November 10 from 1 – 6 p.m. at Cider Corps in Downtown Mesa (31 S. Robson).  Tickets are $50 and include up to 20 samples of ciders and a $5 voucher for food at one of several food truck vendors.
