Riveredge’s beloved, annual outdoor Pancake Breakfast is back! Each year, nearly 1,000 people gather at Riveredge’s Sugarbush House for a celebration honoring the official end of Maple Sugarin’ Season. This year though, this special tradition will be hosted in YOUR outdoor area instead of at Riveredge Nature Center.
The maple sugarin’ season is a treasured time of year at Riveredge, and no matter what happens – we’re determined to share Riveredge Maple Magic with you! Join us for our first ever Virtual Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, April 4!
What is a Virtual Pancake Breakfast?
Riveredge staff are using their unique creativity to bring maple magic into your own home. Our Riveredge Virtual Pancake Breakfast will provide many of the experiences you’ve come to love about exploring the 5th season of the year in the Sugarbush at Riveredge, the only difference is you’ll be exploring it virtually (and maybe in your pajamas)!
Through the power of the internet, we’ll bring you many of the beloved aspects of the annual Pancake Breakfast: a suggested menu to replicate the true Riveredge experience, a tour of the maple syrup making process from the Big Sap himself, pancake making tips from Pickle Puss, and even some of the toe tapping background music.
Then, on Saturday, April 4, you make some pancakes, coat them with delicious real maple syrup, add in any extras, and head outside for a terrific pancake meal. Take some pictures, tag us on social media, and make memories together.
This may very well be the one time in any of our lives that we celebrate a Virtual Pancake Breakfast and we’re working to make it a special experience just for you.
How does the Virtual Pancake Breakfast work?
Each year Riveredge’s Pancake Breakfast not only brings the community together, it also raises important funds to support environmental education and land preservation at Riveredge all year long. We invite you to join in the fun of this Virtual Pancake Breakfast through a donation of your choice. To gain access to all parts of the Riveredge Virtual Pancake Breakfast, all you have to do is click the link below to make your donation and register.
Any donation amount grants your household admission to the Virtual Pancake Breakfast. After registering, you’ll be given a password to access a secret page on our website which will host all kinds of videos and information you can access starting on Thursday, April 2.
You’ll also have the option of ordering a batch of secret-recipe, organic pancake mix and our tapped-on-site real maple syrup from Riveredge. Click here for curbside pick-up and shipping options that are available (if you’d like your order shipped and received by Saturday, April 4, please make sure to order by noon on Tuesday, March 31).
From there, your household will be able to join in Riveredge Maple Magic from the comfort of your dining room, kitchen, porch, or backyard.
Bring your phone or computer outside to participate in some live Facebook videos during the morning of April 4th and experience all of the special videos on the Pancake Breakfast webpage.
