Cider Week New York is scheduled for October 2 to 17, with events ranging from cider tastings and orchard tours to chef and cider pairings and dinners. 

“With over 38 of New York’s finest cideries participating, events will be taking place statewide, including western New York, the Finger Lakes, the Catskills, Hudson Valley and New York City,” says Scott Ramsey, executive director of the New York Cider Association. “A visit to your local cidery, restaurant and cider retail shop during Cider Week is a perfect way to support small business, taste one of New York’s premium agricultural products, and enjoy all that the fall in New York has to offer.”

Directly tied to New York’s agricultural cash crop of apples, New York’s cider industry has seen unprecedented growth of more than 450 percent over the past 10 years. It now has a $1.7 billion economic impact on the state economy. With some 120 producers making 5 million gallons of cider annually, New York is the top state in the country for cider producers.

“It’s always special when we bring together the New York cider community to taste, talk and toast to the past year,” says Ryan Burk, head cidermaker for Cider Week’s presenting sponsor, Angry Orchard.
