July 16, 2019 - International League (IL) - Lehigh Valley IronPigs News Release

The 2019 Lehigh Valley Cider and Wine Festival -- an on-field event featuring hard cider and wine tastings from local and regional cideries and wineries -- returns to Coca-Cola Park on Saturday, Oct. 5.

The event begins at 2 p.m. and features a four-hour tasting session. Last year, a combined total of more than 30 cideries, wineries and food trucks attended, and another exciting lineup is expected in 2019!

Tickets for the event start at just $35 per person. VIP tickets are available for $45 include an extra hour of access (1-6 p.m.).

From now through Monday, August 27, save $5 on your tickets with a special early bird offer. This offer is only valid for a limited time, so secure your $30 general admission or $40 VIP spots before the offer expires.

Tickets are also available for designated drivers. For just $5, DDs may enter the event with the VIPs and enjoy a five-hour session of complimentary soda and access to various food vendors, games and more.

Interested parties are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance as sessions have sold out each year of the event's existence. Should tickets remain the day of the event, they will be available at the ticket window for $40 per person ($50 for VIP).

In addition to unlimited cider and wine tastings, the event includes live music, games (including the Great Apple Launch) and the chance to purchase cider and wine by the bottle or case.

Wineries including Renegade, Bouchette, Blue Mountain and cideries like Angry Orchard, Austin East Ciders and Stella Cidre attended last year's event.
