If an apple a day is good, then a cider a day is even better, right?
Well you’ll be fighting fit next month when the Bellarine becomes host to a massive celebration – all in the name of cider, local fare and top musical talent.
Landing at Flying Brick Cider House, the inaugural Australian Cider Day promises a full day of music, fun, food, cider and celebrations for all ages.
Officially endorsed by Cider Australia, this massive March celebration is all in the name of celebrating the humble Australian apple and pear, or more specifically its spin-off, cider – a drink that has taken the world by storm in the last decade.
Since the whole day revolves around a ‘tribute’ to the humble apple, it would seem only appropriate (and fun) to keep the whole tribute theme happening when it comes to entertainment. Kicking off at 10am, four of the most popular tribute bands in Australia will be performing throughout the day until 9pm – literally the ultimate Tribute line up.
First cab off the rank is Night Fever – Bee Gees Revival, where cider-lovers can sing along, dance and celebrate all the hits, colour, sounds and moves of true music royalty with Australia’s number one Bee Gees show. Next up, internationally acclaimed BABBA will bring out everyone’s inner dancing Queen with a guaranteed spellbinding, spectacular performance, before the international world tour sensation – Simply the Best – Rebecca O’Connor as Tina Turner hits the stage. Rounding out the Australian Cider Day celebrations, revellers will also get to bop along to legendary local cover band, Test Pilot Molly who have become loved for their vibrant performances of contemporary pop hits!
And that’s just the entertainment!
Cider Making demonstrations will allow cider enthusiasts to come behind the scenes on a rare adventure to explore, taste and learn about crafting boutique ciders from fresh fruit, while new release ciders will be on tasting and on the pour throughout the day as well a couple of cheeky cocktails the Flying Brick team have been busily devising!
On the nourishment side of things, there will be food – and lots of it – for anyone and everyone, and the kids will be happy too with the Kid’s ‘CORE’ner will feature a fab jumping castle, face painting and balloon artists.
With an event like this on the horizon, we’re simply smitten to the core!
The Australian Cider Day Celebration will be held at Flying Brick Cider House, 1251 Bellarine Highway, Wallington on Saturday, March 14, 10am – 9pm.
