CANCELED: Maple Sugar Festival

Sat Mar 28, 2020
10:00am to 3:00pm
All ages
$10 for adults/$5 for children ages 3 & up/free for children ages 2 & under (cash only)

It's sugarin' time in the Blue Hills and families can watch as maple syrup is made in the traditional way.

Discover how people learned to get sugar from a tree as you take a walk down "Maple Lane" to meet people who share the maple story and who help you handle and use sugar making tools. Smell the wood smoke as you watch clouds of steam rise from bubbling sap cooking into syrup in the sugar house.

This outdoor event features a self-guided tour over flat, level terrain. Plan to spend at least 90 minutes completing the tour. Afterwards, enjoy free same-day admission to Trailside Museum.

Activities include games for children and a warming bonfire. Skilled artisans will demonstrate traditional, hand-powered crafts. Grab a bite to eat from a food truck, then purchase some locally-produced maple syrup.
