The time to celebrate is here! May 12th we’re opening our doors!
We are super #excidered to announce the Grand Opening of our new space of Flynn Ave!
In response to many years of continued growth and an increasingly limited amount of space, we have moved forward with plans to expand the company’s operation to include a state of the art fruit processing and storage facility on Flynn Avenue in Burlington. It has been our dream to integrate apple pressing into the operation since we founded Citizen Cider in 2011, we are really excited to bring that plan to fruition! Many thanks to Stan and Mary at Happy Valley Orchard for working with us over these years, pressing the cider and solving many problems along the way, to allow Citizen Cider to grow enough to make the expansion a reality.
So what do we do to celebrate this milestone for Citizen Cider? We throw a partY, of course!
That’s right folks, we’re throwing a rager! Joined by our friends on Flynn Ave, we’re going to have an epic day of fun, food, music and general community merriment! City Market will kick the day off at noon with their Grand Opening of the new South End location. Switchback Brewing will join the fun with a beer garden and outdoor activities. We will kick off the day at 2 pm with the following line up:
Adventure Dog! Our 2017 Battle of the Bands winners will be kicking the day off with some rad tunes! Catch them on the stage starting at 2pm!
Brett Hughes and friends will hit the stage around 3pm! Brett is one of the originals from our days back in the ‘fort. We look forward to celebrating with an original Cider Boy!
Last but most certainly not the least, Steady Betty will hit the stage at 4pm. These ladies rocked our CiderFest at Happy Valley and we cannot wait to have them do it all over again at our new spot!
Is there more?
Oh yes, the fun doesn’t end there…. Wildflower Studios will be on site to hang with the kiddos with fun activities and games. We will have food trucks, ice cream from our friends at Lake Champlain Chocolates and adult games on site as well. So bring your friends, bring your family and be ready to celebrate a Citizen milestone with the team! We hope to see you there!
