Sip and Shop in Downtown Athens

Athens, Ala. – On Saturday, December 8, 2018, everyone is invited to sip, shop and celebrate the holiday season in downtown Athens during the annual Sippin’ Cider Festival. From 5 to 8 p.m., winter’s favorite drink will take center stage and there will be special activities for children, visits with Santa Claus, shopping among local merchants and other family-friendly fun.

During the Sippin’ Cider Festival, participating merchants will prepare and offer sample tastings of their favorite hot cider recipe. Cider enthusiasts will vote by ballot for their favorite, and the cider receiving the most votes wins the coveted Cider Cup and bragging rights for the year. The ballots will also serve as an entry to one of many door prizes to be given away.

While sipping on cider, guests can tackle their Christmas shopping and browse for unique holiday decorations. Merchants of downtown Athens will serve up plenty of gift ideas and special sales throughout the evening. Additional activities include festive holiday music, roasting marshmallows for s’mores and a visit by Santa Claus.

Now in its eighth year, Sippin’ Cider is hosted by Athens Main Street. For more information, contact Athens Main Street Executive Director Tere Richardson at 256.232.9040 or tererichardson@athensmainstreet.org.
