Cider Circus takes place at the beautiful Copper Mountain Resort in Frisco, Colorado on August 25, 2018.

It features over 20 ciders and breweries and 75 choices of ciders and craft brews.

While selection and location make the Cider Circus enticing enough, it has plenty more to offer, including:

  • A SuperFly Infusion Master who will enhance your drink with a special selection of fresh ingredients with his unique skills and a magical contraption.
  • A Big Top Cheese Pairing, where you can pair 5 different ciders with 5 different cheeses with the guidance of pairings professionals.
  • Entertainment including circus performances by Salida Circus and live music by Wash Park Band and Tent Show Kings.

You can get tickets on the Cider Circus website.

For $50, you can get first pour access to samples. But there are only 400 of these tickets available, so don’t wait to reserve yours!

If the Big Top Cheese Pairing intrigues you, tickets are available to both the 5pm and 6pm sessions.

Where to Stay

The Copper Mountain Resort is divided into 3 sections: The East Village, West Village and Center Village.

Each village has top-notch lodging central to its own nightlife, ski lifts, and stores.

East Village

East Village is great if you’re taking a romantic trip or desiring a luxurious getaway. With your choice of upscale townhomes, condos, or even an entire private home, you’re guaranteed to find a home away from home that you’ll remember.

You can even sneak in a couple rounds of golf at the nearby course!

West Village

If you’re looking for a quiet, cozy night in after a long day of cider sampling, you may want to choose West Village.

It’s known for its serenity and beautiful views. With easy access to trails, lifts, and other activities, it’s a prime spot for the family.

Center Village

Are you a bit of a night owl? Unpack your bags at a beautiful lodge in Center Village, where you’ll have access to the hottest Frisco nightlife and entertainment.

Once you’ve slept off your adventurous night, you can hop on a zipline or take a shot at the climbing wall. The action never stops at Center Village!

Fly Private to Copper

Being a small mountain town doesn’t stop Frisco from being easy to get to. Simply acquire a comfortable, luxurious jet for a quick ride to Eagle County Regional Airport.

Eagle County Regional is central to mountain hot spots like Vail, Colorado. You can stick around and explore, or head straight to Copper Mountain with a scenic drive in a luxury SUV.
