Pour The Core Hard Cider Festival Arrives At The Navy Yard’s Marine Parade Grounds This Saturday, September 28; Enter To Win Two Free Tickets And A Ride From Uber!
Fall in Philadelphia means the arrival of juicy, orchard-ripened apples at markets and farm stands throughout the area.
Truly, we can think of few better ways to celebrate the humble apple’s high season than with a festival devoted to one of its finest fruits: hard cider.
This Saturday, September 28, Philadelphia’s Navy Yard welcomes fall with Pour the Core: A Hard Cider Festival, a showcase of locally-produced and internationally-sourced ciders to be held on the picturesque Marine Parade Grounds at The Navy Yard from 1 to 5 p.m.
With a sampling of more than 30 ciders in all, attendees can taste a huge variety of ciders and perries (cider made from pears) under tents in the great outdoors, snack on a variety of fare, listen to live music and hear from experts during seminars about making and enjoying cider.
The rain-or-shine event will also help raise funds for the Committee to Benefit the Children.
If you haven’t been down to The Navy Yard recently, this is a terrific opportunity to head south and explore. The campus has seen a ton of development, and is definitely worth the trip. All visitors should enter via the main gate on Broad Street, and complimentary shuttle bus service will be provided for festival attendees from the AT&T (Broad & Pattison) SEPTA station to the event.
Sound like a festival you’d like to attend? You’re in luck. We’re giving away two tickets to the Pour the Core festival!
Valued at $40 each, two tickets will be awarded to one lucky winner. Plus, we’re sweetening the score with the help Uber Philadelphia!
The winner will not only receive two free tickets to the fest, but also two rides up to $50 each, courtesy of Uber. That’s a ride of up $50 there and back, so you can come and go in style and with ease.
