15th Annual Maple Sugar Festival
Saturday February 25, 2023 • 8 am 12 pm
Welty Environmental Center
1201 Big Hill Court
Maple Sugar Fest is an annual family-friendly event that provides a morning full of maple sugar fun!
See the tree-to-table process by hiking through the sugarbush in Big Hill Park, practicing the art of tapping sugar maples, observing the process of boiling sap, and tasting the final product by drizzling local syrup on freshly made pancakes and sausages! Other activities include crafts provided by Nature at the Confluence and Youth2Youth, story times, photo ops, and so much more!
Hopefully the sap will be running. For that to happen, the temperatures have to hit 35 to 40 degrees for a few days running, at least.
The demonstrations show how complicated the maple sugar making process truly is—it can take years to master!
Breakfast will be $7 per adult member, $10 per adult non-member, $5 per child between the ages of 3 and 12, and children 2 and under are free. Additional sausage tickets will be available for purchase on the day of the event ($1 per additional sausage).
We encourage attendees to bring their own utensils for eating breakfast and a mug for hot cocoa or coffee so we can reduce waste from the event.
Tickets for sale at the door.
