[Win it!] Toronto Cider Festival Tickets

It’s been 5 years since the very first Toronto Cider Festival was held in Toronto, and I’m still just as excited as I was then. Cider is my drink of choice, and I’ve loved watching the craft cider industry grow over the past few years.

This year, the Toronto Cider Festival will be held at Sherborune Common, near the waterfront. Guests will be able to sip on over 100 ciders from 33 cideries across Canada and the US. Participating cideries include: Lonetree, Ironwood, Brickworks Ciderhouse, Pommies, Spirit Tree, Ernest Cider, Muskoka Lakes and more! Click here to see the full list.

The festival kicks off with Country Night on Friday, featuring Alessia Cohle and her live country band,
along with DJ Moonshine from the RockNHorse. Those with VIP tickets will get early admission to Friday Night, a commemorative sample mug, and 10 sample tokens along with a Limited Edition 2019 Key to the City and 225 exclusive membership.

On Saturday afternoon, there’s a Waterfront Day Drinking Session with musical entertainment. In the evening, there’s a VIP session presented by Lonetree Cider that will include cider and food pairings. It also comes with a commemorative sample mug and 10 sample tokens.

I’m giving one lucky person the chance to win two tickets! You must be 19+ to be eligible to win. If you don’t win, you can purchase tickets www.torontociderfestival.com. Enter below for your chance to win!
