And if you want to take your experience to the next level, consider this: El Bosco Catering & Food Truck is the main food sponsor for the event, and together with LoneTree, the festival’s main cider sponsor, they are hosting a special cider pairing VIP event on the 24th from 5 pm to 11 pm. Here, you’ll enjoy four Latin dishes paired with four ciders.
