The Lloyd House in Old Town (220 North Washington Street) is hosting a festival next month celebrating Virginia ciders.

The outdoor festival is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 19, and will feature a selection of cideries from around the state.

“Celebrate the tenth anniversary of Virginia Cider Week,” a release said. “Enjoy a selection of ciders from 10 Virginia cideries. Ticket includes cider tastings, a souvenir glass, live music, and a little history too!”

Tickets are $55 if purchased in advance or $65 at the door. Proceeds go to benefit Historic Alexandria Museums.

The event is outdoors at The Lloyd House, so attendees should dress accordingly. The festival will run from 1-5 p.m.
