Festival Info

Cider... lots of cider

The Festival

The biggest celebration of all things cider IS BACK for 2016 and bigger than ever.

Sample a diverse range of cider and perry from over 28 local and international producers, brush up your cider knowledge at a cider master class run by leading industry experts, and talk with the cider makers in person. The festival is perfectly suited to cider enthusiasts, amateur cider makers, craft beer and wine lovers and locals looking for a great day out.

The first AUSTRALIAN CIDER FESTIVAL was held in Manly, SYDNEY in October 2013. We decided to share the love by moving the festival to MELBOURNE in 2014. In 2016 we’re taking the event to a whole new level in partnership with the Malthouse Theatre in Southbank. We’ll keep you posted on 2017 and beyond!


We will have foodtrucks on site, as well as the availabilty to access the delicious Cafe in the Malthouse Theatre.
