Spadina Museum's annual City Cider event this Sunday
Spadina Museum: Historic House & Gardens is teaming up with Not Far From the Tree to host City Cider - an annual family event that features local food, live music, arts and crafts, hands-on workshops and freshly-pressed cider.

City Cider will take place from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 16. Admission is $5 (free for those age 12 and under). Admission includes access to the museum.

The event will feature preserving workshops, guided heritage apple tastings, and cider-making demonstrations and tastings (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) by Cidrerie St-Nicolas. Visitors can pair their cider with eats from the Urban Smoke and Pretty Sweet Cakes food trucks.

Green Toronto's award-winning Not Far From the Tree organization puts Toronto’s abundance of local fruit to good use by picking and sharing the urban bounty, supporting the local food movement and promoting urban ecology. Representatives will show how apples are properly picked and pressed to make delicious cider from Spadina's unique orchard - which includes varieties of apples not commonly available today.

Musical talent at the event will include Ventanas, Caroline Brooks and members of the Good Lovelies and Beams. Children can enjoy kids' yoga, potato sack races and more.

Spadina's gardens are a hidden gem in Toronto's local food landscape. Comprising 2.3 hectares (5.7 acres) and featuring more than 300 varieties of plants, the gardens include an abundant apple orchard, a grape arbour, kitchen gardens and formal areas/display beds.

Spadina Museum: Historic House & Gardens, one of 10 historic museums operated by the City of Toronto, is located at 285 Spadina Road (paid parking is available next door at Casa Loma). More details are available at
