Buskey Cider hosting #804Day event to celebrate RVA

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Buskey Cider is hosting their second annual #804Day event on Friday to celebrate Richmond and local businesses.

The Scott’s Addition cidery, located at 2910 W. Leigh Street, will hold the event from 3 to 10 p.m.

“We’re really trying to celebrate local which is a theme for us everyday that we’re always trying to be part of our community, invest in our community,” said Will Correll, founder and CEO. “We want people to drink our cider in that context with friends, with community responsibly, so it’s really a celebration of that.”

Boulevard Burger and Brew, located in the old Kelly’s, will be selling non-GMO family farm raised beef and vegan sliders at the event. They will be joined by firecracker shrimp from Fat Dragon, located next door to Buskey.

Additionally, local Convergent Coffee and Trussings Craft Fizz will be available in the tasting room. On the cider front, a Randall’d collab will be made specifically for #804Day using sourced local produce by Ellwood Thompson’s, along with Buskey Marys made with Texas Beach Bloody Mary Mix.

MOMS VA will have a puppy kissing booth, where dog fans can play with and choose to adopt rescue dogs.

Buskey Cider will also be donating 10 percent of the day’s cider sales to HandsOn Greater Richmond, a nonprofit that organizes volunteers to complete a variety of projects in the community.

“All of the partners that we are bringing in also have the same kind of theme of responsibility and community focus and just loving Richmond, it’s a cool place to be in this day and age,” Correll said.
