Natural Cider Festival, Nava

Festivity of National Tourist Interest



A celebration in Nava where cider takes centre stage.

The Cider Festival, the most emblematic event of the year in the town of Nava in Asturias, takes place over the second weekend in July, and the preceding week. Celebrated for the first time in 1969, all sorts of cultural activities connected with the region’s favourite drink take place during the festival.

There are talks, debates, exhibitions, concerts, theatre performances and more leading up to the Saturday and the opening speech and the chupinazo that is the signal for a free tasting of thousands of litres of cider. All you need to do in order to sip some cider for free is to wear a green scarf around your neck. On Sunday, the last day of the festival, there’s an International Competition for Escanciadores (professional cider pourers).
