Virginia Cider Festival
Saturday, July 21st, 2018 from 11 to 5 PM
Valley Pike Farm Market is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Virginia Cider Festival to benefit Mercy House !
Mercy House is a local non-profit that fights to reduce poverty and homelessness in the Shenandoah Valley while working to provide services, education, and assistance to prevent future homelessness for families. Mercy House has been prominent within our community for 30 years as of this year, and the Virginia Cider Festival will commemorate the impact it has had on the families in the Valley. A portion of all proceeds from the Virginia Cider Festival at Valley Pike Farm Market will directly benefit Mercy House and the families that they support. We are so excited and honored to work side by side with them for such an amazing cause!
16 Virginia cideries will be present with more than 40 different hard ciders for tasting and purchase!
