Event: Sip Cider, See the Sites

As we approach our second weekend of Fall here in the city of brotherly love, we are reminded of the intense beauty that comes along with autumn in the Northeast. Although the weather has been unseasonably warm for the past week, we are headed into a more fall fitting forecast for the weekend. What better way to embrace all that Fall has to offer than drinking cider while musing through historic landmarks? This Saturday, September 30th, the Ciderfest at the Historic Houses of Fairmount will take place all day but visitors are recommended to arrive by 11:45am to ensure time to take in the sites. Each of the six historic homes will have a correlating local cidery offering cider samples (listed below). The festivities continue with live music and food trucks throughout the area- you can catch The Carryons, Alison Polans, Joey Sweeney, Allen Krantz and more performing throughout the day. Access to the historic homes, cider sampling with a souvenir tasting cup and house-to-house transportation via Phlash’s CiderFest Loop are all included in the ticket price of $40 ($50 day of). A Saturday afternoon full of cider, history, food trucks and autumn sunshine…I can’t think of anything better!
