    2:00 to 6:00PM | Ditmars Orchard & Vineyard
    19475 225th Street, Council Bluffs,

    Help us celebrate the ancient British tradition and Wassail the apple trees with us! The public is invited to join the Ditmars family in the tradition of protecting our orchard and asking for the blessing of a successful crop next season. Activities include re-enactments of old English traditional rituals and rhymes with a chance to see the wassailing ceremony every hour at 2:30, 3:30, 4:30, and 5:30 p.m. Everyone joins in with chanting and music-making, toasts of hot cider, and placing gifts of cider-soaked bread — donuts, in our case — onto the tree branches while chanting the lively words of praise for the new year.

    Warm yourself next to our bonfires or in our store. Enjoy a traditional mulled wassail drink, served hot with spices mixed with our regular fresh-pressed, or hard apple cider. The bar inside will be open with our own local Iowa wines. A food vendor will be serving turkey legs, spud nachos, shepherds pie and grilled burgers, and hot dogs and brats. The admission is free!
