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.
