Event description


Join Not Far From The Tree in celebrating Toronto's urban harvest at the Spadina Museum! After a busy picking season, the thousands of pounds of fruit picked and shared across Toronto is a resason to celebrate!

Where better to enjoy September's bountiful apple harvest than the historic orchard nestled within the grounds of the Spadina Museum?

At City Cider you will picnic on the lush lawns surrounded by gardens, enjoy a hard cider bar from Ontario Cideries, listen to local music, and enjoy a wide variety of lawn games and kid's activities (tree rapelling included!). We also invite you to join us in hand pressing over 500 lbs of apples picked directly in the city to turn it into fresh cider.

All tickets include a free tour of the Spadina Museum. Spadina Museum offers a glimpse of Toronto during the 1900-1930 period through the lens of the Austin family. Find out more here!

All proceeds from City Cider support Not Far From The Tree's fruit picking and sharing program.
