Halloween is way too much fun to relegate to one night – or one weekend. Enter Halloweek. It’s a full week of your favorite Halloween traditions at your favorite cidery. And did we mention there’s a special release cider every single night of Halloweek? Yeah that’s right. That’s the treat. The trick? They’re all available for one night only.
Let’s break down the week, shall we?
We start on October 25 with a pumpkin decorating contest. We’ll have pumpkins and markers on hand (while supplies last) for your gourd-geous endeavors. Feel free to bring your own art supplies, but no knives please. There’s alcohol involved, after all. Speaking of beverages, you’ll be pairing your handiwork with our Halloweek Day 1 cider: The Headless Gourd. This roasted pumpkin cider is mixed with butternut squash for a spectacle of New World flavors.
Day 2, October 26, brings live music from Suite 25 starting at 8 p.m. Springdale’s biggest Halloween event, Treats at the Train, is less than a block away. We’ll have candy for any wayward children who stop in. For adults, we continue the candy theme with The Hot Cauldron – a spicy chocolate cider with chocolate scorpion pepper.
Ciderday Night Comedy continues on October 27 with New Yorker Josh Cocks and Memphis’ own Will Loden splitting sides starting at 8 p.m. The cider of the night is Atomic Candy, a sweet and cinnamon-y cider with a spicy kick.
Come be part of a live podcast on Sunday, October 28, on Day 4 as Travis Smith creeps us all out with spine-tingling ghost stories. Be sure to look for the podcast on your favorite listening device later – it’s called Making a Scene. Sunday’s cider is Mummy Maple featuring – you guessed it – maple. What’s more fall than that?
Two words for Monday, October 29. Harry Potter. You think you know the in’s and out’s of J.K. Rowling’s universe? Come prove it at Harry Potter trivia, where the top teams always win prizes. While you’re at it, drink a little Hagrid’s Scrumpy, our adult take on butterbeer.
With just two days left in Halloweek, come decorate a mask on October 30. We’re thinking more spooky than Mardi Gras, but follow your heart here. Our featured cider is one that will familiar to Black Apple die-hards – the beloved Caramel Apple. All ye with sweet tooths, gather ’round.
The much anticipated Halloween night culminates with a costume contest for both pups and humans. Does your dog look like Richard Branson? We have to see that. No joke.
Our final cider of Halloweek is the Purple People Eater, a dry hopped cider made with purple corn. It’s a-maizing.
Did we mention all of these fantastic events are free? And, of course, in addition to these “one night only” special ciders, you can find our regular line-up of favorites on tap. Come celebrate Halloweek with us in Downtown Springdale.
