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.
