The Northwest Cider Association is planning its third annual Washington Cider Week, a ten-day celebration of craft hard cider beginning September 5 in Seattle.

Fourteen Washington cideries will participate in the event, which features more than 75 activities or special menu items at Seattle area restaurants. The publication Edible Seattle is co-sponsoring Washington Cider Week.

The Northwest Cider Association represents 32 cider producers in Washington, Oregon, Montana, and British Columbia. For a schedule of Washington Cider Week events or to learn more about the association, check the association’s Web site.
