OMSI After Dark: Ciderfest

JUN 22, 2016 | 7-11 PM

CIDERFEST TICKETS HAVE SOLD OUT. WE STILL HAVE SOME OAD ONLY TICKETS LEFT. HOPE TO SEE YOU HERE TONIGHT!

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS NOT THE LAST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH SO THAT WE CAN COORDINATE OUR EVENT WITH PORTLAND CIDER WEEK. 

 

Shoot off water rockets, concoct chemical creations, and explore the wonders of OMSI with no kids in sight! Enjoy a glass of wine while learning about robots, tornados, or fossils. Talk to a brewer about the science behind beer, or taste how an extra 10% cacao can make a difference in chocolate.

 

All that and more with OMSI After Dark, a night at the museum for the 21-and-over crowd filled with food, drink, and science fun!

 

21+ Only | ID's Required
