Sunday, September 22, 1-4 pm, JQA Young House, 119th and Cornell in Cedar Mill
(12050 NW Cornell Road, Portland, OR 97229)

The annual Cedar Mill Cider Festival will bring together history, music, food, and fun for the community on the grounds of the historic John Quincy Adams Young House in Cedar Mill. The site is part of the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District (THPRD), which sponsors the event.

Scouts from Boy Scout Troup 208 have made it a yearly tradition to crank two antique cider presses to make free samples of fresh cider for everyone. Apples will be donated by Safeway.

Guests can browse the food and craft offerings of local vendors along Vendor Alley. The THPRD Rec Mobile will be onsite to provide games and activities for kids.

Lunch will be available from Retrolicious, a local mobile food vendor. Guests can enjoy lunch or dessert while listening to the folksy bluegrass music of Lauren Sheehan and her String Band,

The History Tent will provide information about Cedar Mill history and the plans for restoration of the JQAY House, along with displays about the Atfalati (Tualatin) Indians who lived here before the pioneers.

New this year, we will be recording Oral History stories in a tent near the JQA Young House. Anyone with stories about earlier times in Washington County is welcome to visit the History Tent to sign up. The videos will be available on the Cedar Mill History website.

The grounds are wheelchair-accessible, although the area is not paved and can be rough in spots. Free parking is available after 1 pm in the Cedar Mill Bible Church parking lot; look for the signs on Cornell. TriMet lines 62 Murray and 48 Cornell serve the site and depart from the Sunset Transit Center.
