Cider Swig ... with a Drive-Thru Twist 9/27/2020Name: Cider Swig ... with a Drive-Thru Twist 9/27/2020Date: September 27, 2020Time: 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM PDTWebsite: www.ciderswig.orgEvent Description:
The wildly popular festival typically features live music and entertainment, award winning delectable curbside cuisine from local food trucks, and the Apple Carnivàle area for great family fun. Though, the current mandates do not support bringing some 3,800 people together for a glorious day of sipping, swigging, apple launching, pies, live music, and more, there will be a Cider Swig – with a bit of a twist!
September 27th at the Imax Theatre parking lot at Uptown Gig Harbor, you can drive-thru and pick-up your Cider Swig To-Go tasting kits, as well as delicious meal options to accompany your take home festival. And, to round out the experience, sounds of area bands and musicians that would have otherwise played live at the festival will set the backdrop.
Pick-up will take place between 12 PM and 4 PM. All tasting kits, optional add-ons and to-go meal options must be pre-ordered. And, for a small fee, there will also be a limited delivery service in a 5-mile radius of this location.
There will be a choice of two delectable pre-order meal options from area food trucks and caterers. For Sunday 9/27, the Gig Harbor location will offer
patrons the option between a pulled pork or chicken sandwich from BBQ2U or from our own Gig Harbor born and raised Chef Laura Smythe of Lora’s LeGarmache an amazing epicurean box featuring assorted crackers and sliced baguette with roasted garlic and three bean pates, candied bacon, and a fire-roasted apple tartlet with brie and a caramel drizzle.
Beyond fun in a box, Cider Swig 2020 Drive-Thru Edition provides an amazing opportunity to help support the small businesses at the heart of every cidery and food purveyor, and your community all at the same time. The tasting kits come in two sizes, Micro Swig contains 8 regional handcrafted ciders (12 to 19 oz.), and the Cider with Kin Macro Kit has 13 ciders (12 to 25 oz.). Each kit comes with two 12 oz. customized stemless cider glasses, misc. tchotchkes, and a $5 discount voucher for Cider Swig 2021!
On the day, volunteers run the entire show, as they have since 2014. Locals are proud of what our community has to offer visitors from near and far, and this major fundraising event has poured thousands of dollars into projects aimed at improving the environmental health of the Puget Sound. Proceeds are distributed annually through the Lu Winsor Memorial Environmental Grant program, which is jointly supported by Pierce County, Peninsula Light Co. and GGHF via Cider Swig proceeds.
