When is Wassail? We suggest observing North American Wassail celebrations from January 5th to January 17th, 2014.*
Wassail is an informal collaborative effort of interested cider-drinkers in North America (and beyond).
Goals for the 2014 Wassail: Explore Old & New World Wassail Traditions, Salute The Orchard, Honor The Apple and Celebrate With Cider!
How Can You Wassail? It’s Easy! Enjoy cider and a wassail bowl with friends, visit an orchard, cidermaker or local cider-serving establishment and toast the orchard & the apple, or host a Wassail event of your own.
Let us know if you’re planning an event – we’ll post it on the Wassail 2014 page.
Share your Wassailing plans and pictures. Post, tweet, tumble and instagram The Wassail!
* We’re considering Wassailing all the way through January. Why not?!
