A celebration of fruity ferments by the big blue

You know what the perfect Sunday looks like? It's strolling through a street fair dedicated to ice cold cider, shaded by big fig trees and with the harbour lapping at the shore only a few feet away. That is the blissful event that awaits you if you bug tickets to this year' Watsons Bay Cider Festival. It's the third year for the far-east outpost, and your ticket includes 10 tasting tokens and a complimentary bottle of your favourite from the pop-up cider bar. That means you can cruise between stalls from Sassy Cider, Del Verano, 5Seeds, James Squire, Bilpin, Somersby, Thatchers, Rochdale, Rekorderlig, Kirin, Endless Cider and the Australian Brewery, tasting as you go and keeping things on an even footing with pulled pork rolls, sticky ribs, hot dogs, corn on the cob and homemade Nutella doughnuts. There will also be live entertainment, apple bobbing and prizes to be won. Sounds like one hell of a Sunday session to us.
