Hood River, Oregon appeals to outdoor enthusiasts on a variety of levels. From its rugged and scenic landscape to endless opportunities to get out and take to the trails, Hood River is a haven of natural beauty that beckons to travelers from across the country and globe. Beyond its many mountains and hills, Hood River is also home to rich soil that provides near-perfect growing conditions for a large variety of fruits. From pears to cherries and the many apples in between, Hood River ranks high on the list of destinations where fruit thrives and as a result, the hard-pressed cider industry has reached new heights. In honor of all that is hard-pressed cider, the Hood River Chamber of Commerce proudly invited guests and locals to the 4th annual Hood River Hard Pressed Cider Fest in 2019.
