Join us for a Jolly Wassail! This year features bonfires, horse-drawn sleigh rides, after-dark orchard tours, and a live music processional.
Our annual Wassail is back again at Virtue Cider, this year taking place on Saturday, February 10. Join us for our take on the English tradition of wassailing to bless the trees for a bountiful cider apple harvest the following year. We'll sing to the trees to cast out any harmful orchard spirits, while beckoning the good ones who will bring us a good harvest next season. This is an all-ages event until dark. (The after-dark orchard tour will be 21+, commencing with a performance by Detroit Party Marching Band.)
