You better believe it… we’re TEN DAYS OUT! Woodchuck Ciderstock is just around the corner and it’s time to start getting pumped. As we start the final countdown,  start getting your ducks (or ‘Chucks) in order. Take a look at our Ciderstock Handbook so you’re ready to go!


For those who haven’t yet, GET YOUR TICKETS TODAY! Just $25 for a full day of great times and awesome music! If there are tickets remaining, they will be sold at the gate for $30 each.


Since our parking lots will be filled with delicious food and festival fun, our cidery neighbors have offered to help us out! We will have shuttles running to and from the event from all the locations indicated on the map below, but we strongly suggest carpooling! Scout out what works best for you, Woodchuck Ciderstock Parking and Shuttles Map! Please note, there is NO TAILGATING ALLOWED in any lot. There will be roaming security through the lots and they reserve the right to ask any vehicle or party to vacate the premises… so do us both a solid and just don’t do it.


Definitely Bring…

  • TICKET – might just help you get in.
  • CASH – you will only be able to purchase cold hard cider and food with cold hard cash. The Swag Tent will take both cash and credit.
  • VALID PHOTO ID – this is the only way 21+ folks can buy cider!

Other good packing list items

  • Sunscreen/hat/sunglasses – always protect from the sun! Remember pump bottles for your sunscreen only. No aerosol cans allowed in the venue.
  • Rain jacket or poncho – you know Vermont… if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes!
  • Empty water bottle (NO Glass!) – make sure you hydrate between ciders!
  • Small backpack – you’ll need something to carry home that shwag!
  • Foldable lawn chair – everyone’s feet need a break from dancing every now and again.
  • Baby gear if needed – keep that youngin’ comfortable… but please remember this is a festival with loud music and hard cider! Ear protection for the little one might be in order.

Please don’t bring…

Weapons of any kind, illegal substances, drug paraphernalia, fireworks, explosives, framed or large backpacks, tents, laser pointers, aerosol cans, no outside food or alcohol (food & alcohol will be sold at the event), glass containers, skateboards, scooters, or personal motorized vehicles, bicycles inside Ciderstock grounds (bike racks will be at the gate), large umbrellas, hard-sided coolers, pets (other than service animals), laptops, radios, professional video camera equipment, any audio recording equipment.
