Athens, Ala. – Eat, Sip, and Shop at the Sippin’ Cider Festival in downtown Athens.

Winter’s favorite drink will take center stage in downtown Athens, Ala. the second Saturday in December when Athens Main Street hosts the seventh annual Sippin’ Cider Festival.

The holiday affair, set for December 9, 2017, offers an evening of roasting marshmallows, shopping among local merchants, special activities for children, visits with Santa Claus, and door prize giveaways as festival goers sip on hot cider prepared by downtown merchants.

From 5 to 8 p.m., participating merchants will offer sample tastings of their favorite cider recipe. Guests will vote by ballot for their favorite, and the cider receiving the most votes wins the coveted Cider Cup and bragging rights for the year. The ballots will also serve as an entry to one of many door prizes to be given away.

During Sippin’ Cider, merchants of downtown Athens will also serve up gift ideas and special sales throughout the evening. While sipping on cider, guests can tackle their Christmas shopping and browse for unique holiday decorations while supporting local businesses.

Other activities include special activities in stores for children, festive holiday music, roasting marshmallows, and a visit by Santa Claus.
