Virtue Cider Wassail

  • Virtude Cider in Fennville
  • 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 (singing to) to bless the trees for a bountiful cider apple harvest the following year. 
  • This year features bonfires, horse-drawn sleigh rides, after-dark orchard tours, and a live music processional.
  • 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.)
