Every year the Batlow CiderFest includes an educational component that supports the apple and cider industries and those that enjoy a cider. The focus this year is on real cider made from 100% Australian fruit. Come along on Friday 17 May and ‘Taste and Learn’ from real Aussie cider makers who support our apple industry. You may also like to join our local Hand Crafted cider makers for a cidery and orchard visit on the Sunday.

Become a part of an event which bring great economic benefits to our community. The positives spill over to the rest of the district and even nearby regions and your business can be part of our success story.
In 2018 over 4,500 people attended for the day. Over 60% of our visitors come from outside our region, from nearby capital cities and even interstate. International touring parties are now looking at including our rural hideaway on their itinerary because what better way to meet the locals and get a feel for a fun, carefree Aussie culture than attend Batlow CiderFest.
Batlow CiderFest is a multi-faceted event. The day before the festival, Batlow hosts Craft Cider workshops as well as a Back to Nature seminar and workshops.
These activities are anticipated to attract delegates from around Australia. Delegates are usually looking at being innovative with their rural assets, interested in pushing boundaries, and open to trying new things that can grow local economies.
There could be some of our delegates who, like the Festival, would be interested in forming mutually beneficial partnerships.
Talk to us if you if you would like to discuss a partnership that supports joint aims into the future.
