Everything's sweeter during Maple Sugarin' season.
No one does maple sugaring like Riveredge.
And, this year, we are celebrating our brand NEW Sugarbush House!
We see maple sugarin’ as a time to celebrate the changing of the seasons, teach about the wonders of the forest and trees around us, and experience the pure magic of turning a byproduct of nature into a delicious treat.
Maple sugarin’ season has something for everyone. Whether you’re a scout troop looking to learn just how this syrup stuff is made, an individual looking to learn how you can tap the trees in your own backyard for fun or profit, or a family looking to celebrate the season at a special festival or supper, we’ve got something we’re sure you’re going to love.
Saturday, March 23 | 10:00am - 3:00pm
Maple Sugarin' Festival
Riveredge’s Maple Sugarin’ Festival will take you on a journey through the sugarbush where you will experience the maple sugarin’ season like never before! Along the way, you’ll learn how to tap a maple tree, observe live demonstrations, participate in hands-on activities, enjoy music, games, see our new Sugarbush House, and so much more!
When you reach the evaporator, you’ll learn how sap is transformed into syrup and enjoy one of our famous pancakes and 100% pure Riveredge maple syrup. Lunch & refreshments are available for purchase - including a special serving from The Fermentorium for 21+ “kids at heart."
The event is designed to be a festival style experience where you can move at your own pace and in any order between stations so you can come anytime between 10 AM and 2 PM. The event runs until 3 PM, but we recommend AT LEAST an hour to see all the stations.
Saturday, April 6 | 9:00am - 1:00pm
