Lakewood Cider Days
Cider Days is the longest-running community
festival in the City of Lakewood, Colorado. Every year, it brings
thousands of area residents to enjoy the food, music, art, and
history of their community. In the first part of the 20th century,
apple trees were so common in the area that one hill was known as
"Cider Hill," lending its name to the event. Lakewood Cider Days
began as a special lunch program put together in the mid-1970s by a
local historical society in which old farm machinery was
demonstrated. Over the past 25 years, Cider Days has grown to
include a variety of food vendors, stage performers, family
activities and historic exhibits and demonstrations.
