The Ross Cider Festival is an annual event that takes place in the small village of Peterstow of Ross-on-Wye, located in the heart of the English countryside. The festival celebrates the rich history of cider-making in the region and offers a wide range of locally-produced ciders and perries for attendees to try.
One of the highlights of the Ross Cider Festival is the opportunity to sample a wide range of ciders and perries from local producers. The festival features a variety of traditional and modern cider styles, including dry, medium, and sweet ciders, as well as perries made from pears. In addition to the main cider tent, there are also smaller tents featuring ciders from local microbreweries and artisan producers.
In addition to the cider-tasting, the Ross Cider Festival also offers a range of food options, including traditional English pub grub and a variety of international cuisines. There are also stalls selling local crafts and products, providing a great opportunity for visitors to take home a souvenir of their visit.
Cider Festival tickets are £45 Friday to Sunday.
If you choose to camp, it is just £15 for camping per person, and you are welcome to arrive from Thursday and depart Monday.
Local accommodation is available in Peterstow at Field Cottage for groups of up to 12 people.
If you are bringing a caravan/campervans/motorhome, we charge a small £10 surcharge per vehicle for the festival. This lets us spend the extra time preparing more areas of the farm for your vehicle and reserving those slots.
Overall, the Ross Cider Festival is a fun and festive event that brings together people from all over the region to celebrate the rich history and culture of cider-making. Whether you’re a cider connoisseur or simply looking for a fun day out in the countryside, the Ross Cider Festival is an event that should not be missed.
