Saturday, August 29th Noon - 10pm
We love ciders at March First Brewing so we have decided to throw the best craft cider festival in Cincinnati two years in a row! We're going to be bringing in some amazing ciders from all around the country right here in your back yard!
We will have both taprooms and both patios open with serving stations spread out for maximum social distancing. Stay tuned for the layout map!
Ciders will be 5oz pours and tickets are $3 for 1 or 10 for $25
We need volunteers to help pour!

Part of our parking lot will be taken up by additional seating to allow us to spread out and social distance better. Because of this parking will be limited in our lot. Overflow parking is available in the Kemper Pointe public lot across the street. (Over by the pond) You can use the crosswalk to cross Kemper Rd and the sidewalk to get to the brewery. You may also find parking along Goldcoast Dr. Also consider getting an Uber, Lyft or Taxi to get to the event so you can safely get home.
A Note On Social Distancing
We are very lucky to have a lot of space at March First. Our front patio, main taproom, old taproom (where the brewery is), back patio, and beer garden will all be open. We are also roping off the front row parking along the front of the brewery to extend our patio out around the building. There will be ample space to spread out. In addition we are spreading out serving stations in order to reduce people bunching up in one area.
What If I Don't Like Cider?
It's ok! The main bar will be open for regular business. All of our beer, hard seltzer and spirits will be available at the main bar.
What About Food?
Our kitchen will be open and operational during Ciderpalooza, but we will be doing pizza only. Starting at 4pm we will also have El Cardenal Taqueria food truck set up outside!
