Craft cider is the fastest growing beverage in the market these days, and to celebrate this growing Midwest passion, the 7th Annual Great Lakes Cider & Perry Festival returns to Uncle John’s Cider Mill at 8614 N US 127, St. Johns – just north of Lansing.
More than one hundred different ciders and perries from dozens of producers from throughout the region will be available for sampling on Saturday, September 6. This annual sampling, along with great food and live music, is presented by the Great Lakes Cider & Perry Association.

General festival admission runs from 1-7pm. At $15 per person, regular admission includes a commemorative glass and 10 sample pours. Group tickets are also available for general admission ($25 for 2 tickets | $40 for 4 tickets | $75 for 10 tickets). All profit proceeds from the festival benefit the Great Lake Cider & Perry Association (est. 2008).

Individuals interested in volunteering at the event should contact Mike Beck at 989-640-2763 / This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
