Maple Sugarin’ Festival
The fifth season is approaching- the Maple Sugarin’ Season! Bring your families, bring your friends to celebrate this sappy gift from the trees! Along a half-mile hike through the maple forest, you can tap a tree, trade nature items for maple candies, observe various means of syrup production through history, and complete a sappy scavenger hunt. Upon arrival at the Sugarbush House, listen to live music while you sip sap tea, or maple-sugar rimmed beer for the adults, and taste the Riveredge special- pancakes & pickles! You’ll learn just how sap is made into golden & sweet maple syrup.
See below for more Maple Sugarin’ Festival details.
