Habitat Challenge, urban rappel @ Hotel Murano
Aug 27 all-day

Few fundraising events present the kind of thrilling, bucket-list experience like the Habitat Challenge, presented by Harborstone Credit Union. It’s a 245? urban rappel down Tacoma’s second-tallest building – Hotel Murano – to raise funds for affordable housing in our community.

Some take the Habitat Challenge to conquer fears; others to mark a milestone; some do it just for the bragging rights.

This is not your typical rock-climbing rappel! We partner with Over the Edge (OTE) and their certified industrial ropes specialists manage the rappel. Anyone age 13+ and weighing between 100-300 lbs can safely rappel, and no experience is needed. However, participants must be able to climb two flights of stairs and a short ladder to access the rappel site. Edgers also need the leg strength to independently step up to the roof’s parapet. Globally, OTE has a history of over 75,000 descents at 372 buildings with no safety incidents.

A $50 registration fee holds your spot on the ropes and counts toward the $1,000 fundraising goal. We make fundraising easy with an online platform that tracks your progress and donors, including a unique URL that you can customize with your own photos, a statement about yourself and why you’re going over the edge for Habitat.

Proceeds benefit Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity’s affordable homeownership and foreclosure prevention programs, making it possible for families to be safely housed during these challenging times.

Northwest cidermakers, vintners and distillers will present over 100 ciders, wine, mead and more. The popular Apple Carnivàle returns – replete with performers, arts and crafts, dancers, an array of carnival games, inflatable obstacle course, sticky wall, face painting, apple launching, demonstrations, and other fun and games.

Ciders, etc. presented for sampling in the Cider Garden will be for sale under the Cider Tent, so you can take your favorites home to enjoy!

**Each year the Cider Swig brings thousands from around the region to enjoy ciders, great food, live music and family fun. And, each year the Cider Swig sells out! Advance ticket purchase is strongly encouraged.**

OTHER FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
For 2021 we have chosen to make this a 21+ only event. We hope that 2022 we will be able to return to an accessible family-fun event.
