Kellybrook Cider Festival

An autumn harvest celebration. Every year – rain, hail, or shine (well, except when a pandemic hits)!

The festival will not run in May 2021 due to the uncertainty of planning events with COVID restrictions. Stay tuned though – we hope to run the festival again in spring of 2021 or in autumn 2022. Follow us on Instagram or Facebook for any announcements.

Scrumpy cider, great live bands, loads of great food and smiles all round is what the Kellybrook cider festival is all about. With a strong focus on families, it’s an event for everyone.

Since its inception 32 years ago, it has become the premier independent cider festival event in Australia.

Cider, Music and Family Fun

The origins of the festival are based in the celebration of the end of the apple harvest and we have adapted it to include end of wine vintage celebration. Set in the historic gardens and vineyards at Kellybrook’s Wonga Park property, it’s only 40 mins from Melbourne. The weekend features our famous Scrumpy, Kelly Brothers ciders, Riders brew co beers and Kellybrook’s highly regarded estate grown wines.

This is the only time of the year that we make our famous scrumpy!

Don’t miss the Morris dancers and under the great oak the talented local musicians playing rootsy Rock to country and folk.
