When: Sat., Aug. 18, 3 p.m.
Back-to-school season is just around the corner, but summer vacation is still in full swing at Ciderstock, Woodchuck Hard Cider’s annual celebration of food, drink and live music. Fun-time tunes by acts such as 311 (pictured), Moon Taxi, Jukebox the Ghost and local favorite the Seth Yacovone Band keep festivalgoers on their feet. The outdoor bash also offers a smorgasbord of tasty fare from the likes of Fajita Hut, Porky’s Backyard BBQ & Smokehouse, and Island Homemade Ice Cream, plus a variety of fermented apple-based beverages. For an extra fee, hard-core cider fans can score samples, a koozie, a 16-ounce can and a walk-through of the tank farm as part of Firkin Frenzy.
Price: $35-40; $20 for Firkin Frenzy; free for kids 12 and under.
