When & Where The Nava Cider Festival usually takes place on the second weekend in July in the town of Nava in the region of Asturias near the North-West of Spain. There's lots of smaller cider festivals around this part of Spain during the Summer months.
What to expect Hundreds of microbrewers transcend on the small town of Nava in a bid for acknowledgment, recognition and another crazy Spanish Fiesta. Theres music in the streets, all the bars are open late and in traditional Spanish festival style (sawdust on the floor) with potent, sweet cider on offer. Theres is also the pouring competition- this is the tradition whereby locals practice all year to pour the cider without looking at the glass but by tilting the bottle several feet above the bottle in a skilful feat that results in no spillage !
Where to stay Asturia has lots of great hostels and hotels. If you want to get close to Nava for el fiesta de la Sidra, you can book here
