The orchards are, in fact, coming back to Orchard Street … albeit temporarily.
With apple picking season wrapping up, the 2nd annual Lower East Cider Fest is kicking off this weekend, as part of the larger “Cider Week NYC” celebration happening throughout the – wait for it – Big Apple. The event will showcase notable cider makers and apple growers repping the Finger Lakes, Hudson Valley, Western New York and even NYC. Activities apart from imbibing the wares include the ever popular “make your own caramel apple cart,” Morris dancing, and a “shrunken apple head carving station.” There will also be food and such, as is the custom with these events.
The Lower East Cider fest is free, but 21+ if you are planning on getting sauced. It’s taking place this Sunday, October 23, from 12 to 4pm. More info here. If you can’t make it, there are a slew of other cider happy events going on in the city through October 30. Full line up can be found here.
Speaking of shrunken heads…
