Toronto Cider Festival has been a catalyst in bringing cider into the spotlight with the first festival in Toronto dedicated exclusively to cider in 2015. Cider has since been growing in popularity, receiving a significant amount of governmental support in recent years and has been the fastest growing alcoholic beverage in North America.
Toronto Cider Festival has since grown into the largest cider festival in Canada and launched the inaugural
