When the 2024 edition of CiderCon takes place in January 2024 in Portland, Oregon, the statewide celebration of Oregon Cider Week will return from Saturday, January 13 – Sunday, January 21. Events will include tastings, tap takeovers, meet the maker events, pairing dinners, limited releases and more.
Oregon Cider Week is produced by the non-profit NW Cider Association (NWCA) and sponsored by Columbia Distributing. The nine day event taps into the buzz of excitement around CiderCon, the world’s largest cider conference, which will be held in Portland that week for the first time in nearly a decade. CiderCon will bring 1,000+ attendees into the city, including makers and apple growers from around the world.
Oregon is home to nearly 80 cideries, and Portlanders enjoy the honor of drinking more cider per capita than anywhere else in the world. Through Oregon Cider Week and CiderCon the city is poised to bring together cider professionals and enthusiasts with one-of-a-kind consumer events that offer a taste of the region’s bounty.
