You’re invited to visit Riverdale Orchard and Cidery and have a ‘braw’ time at our four-season destination for families, friends, and groups.
In the Scottish tradition, we love hosting events that bring folks together and provide a welcoming, cozy atmosphere where everyone feels right at home.
Our events are inspired by some of our favorite Scottish and Canadian traditions – from curry & cider nights to snowshoeing adventures, bonfires, live music, kite flying, and more!
Throughout the year we also celebrate holidays and other special occasions with fun, family-friendly events. A couple of our most beloved holiday events include Christmas in Riverdale and Guy Fawkes Bonfire Night, but we love any reason to celebrate, so you’ll find us hosting plenty of other holiday-inspired events during every season.
Christmas in Riverdale is a festive affair that showcases our local community of artisans. It’s the perfect way to get into the spirit of the season and experience the magic of Christmas in the countryside.
Our Guy Fawkes bonfire (Nov 5th) is a must for any Anglophile (that’s a person who an affinity for the United Kingdom!) or anyone who loves a roaring fire on a crisp autumn evening.
Delicious comfort food, warm and cold beverages, and conviviality are hallmarks of each and every event we host. Our events are always family-friendly and, where possible, dog-friendly too (we ask that you keep your well-behaved pooch on a leash at all times).
Check out our calendar of events for upcoming opportunities to eat, drink, and be merry at Riverdale Orchard & Cidery.
An apple orchard day keeps the kids at play!
Round the kids up, hop in the car, and head to Riverdale Orchard & Cidery for a family outing everyone will savour! Yes, we craft adult artisan cider, but everything else about Riverdale is family-friendly and family-oriented.
As a family-run operation with adult kids and wee grandkids, we believe that family outings should be easy-breezy, fun for everyone, and, of course, memorable.

Kite-flying. Lunching at our picnic pods. Exploring the apple orchards. Relaxing on the deck with a pint. Snowshoeing through the hills and orchards. Taking in a family-friendly event. There are countless ways to while away the time our orchard oasis and create unforgettable family memories.
We humbly predict that once you visit Riverdale Orchard & Cidery, it’ll become your go-to destination for family fun throughout the year!

As Scottish folk, we strongly believe that gathering around the table with your best mates and sipping a pint of your favourite imbibement is one of life’s simplest and greatest pleasures.
Biking the Confederation Trail with your buds? Playing a friendly game of disc golf at Hillcrest Farm or Strathgartney? Taking a hike with your favourite peeps at Bonshaw Provincial Park? Road-tripping around the Island’s south shore?
