Best new festival in Ellensburg, WA

Welcome to WindFall!

WindFall Cider Fest - Presented by KEEN

The Best Crafted Cider & Music meet to celebrate the colors of fall in the center of Washington

Ciderhouses from Puget Sound,  Wenatchee, Yakima and around the region will bring enough varieties to make the most experienced taster swoon.  Four live bands, Bluegrass to Folk to Americana, will own the outdoor stage. 


Come to Western Town at the Kittitas Valley Event Center, Ellensburg, WA.  Gather with your friends on October 13.   Taps are open from 3 pm to 9 pm.

WindFall is an event for ages 21 and up.  ID will be required. 

Biggest Gathering of Cider in Central Washington

Twelve cider houses will be doing their best to impress.  

Each cider house will bring two or three varieties for your pleasure. From dry to sweet to hopped to fruited, herbed or flowered, there's a cider for everyone. 

Local restaurants and concessions will offer plentiful handy food for every taste.   Beer, wine and soft drinks will also be available. 

Four Live Bands, powered by Chinook Entertainment

Our partners and friends at Chinook Entertainment are putting together a fantastic line up! WindFall is fortunate to work with veteran music festival producers and add the Chinook experience to the event.

"Where Great Music Meets the Great Outdoors" is Chinook's mantra, and they are sure to bring some bands with juice! 

Volunteers are the best!

We appreciate our volunteers!  We need help at assorted times for different task, before, during and after the WindFall Cider Fest.  Special perks for signing up and helping out.  Click the link below
