The event will be family friendly and there will be lots of activities for old and young. On Saturday the emphasis is on food and drink and on Sunday the apple itself is very much at the core of the festival!
Paul Deegan, from Slow Food, said - “As an organisation we have always been concerned with the preservation of local food heritage. Apples and cider are an integral part of the South Tipperary landscape. We feel the time has come to celebrate the local cider-making tradition and promote the Irish apple-growing industry, and where better to start than in Tipperary.”

Craft cider and other apple-based products offer growers an economically viable use for apples with the potential for export and to contribute to the economy of the region.
