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.)

Need a ride from Chicago? Book a spot on our shuttle!

This year we're featuring:

  • Bonfires
  • Cider celebrations
  • Food on-site
  • Traditional after-dark orchard processional (starting with music from Detroit Party Marching Band at 6pm)
  • Dress for outdoor weather! We also welcome seasonal costumes or masks to keep with tradition.
