Pennsylvania Maple Sugaring Season Events for Kids, 2021
It's maple sugaring season! And if you have ever wondered what all the fuss was about, now is your chance to find out. The official tree-tapping season kicks off in February, but sugarings and tastings across Pennsylvania run through April. Our list includes demos in which visitors can watch an actual tree tapping as well as daylong experiences and weekend festivals. Many are local events, but some could require an overnight.
Of course, COVID-19 has impacted the season with a few venues taking a year off from hosting. However, many are keeping the tradition going since activities are generally held outside. Visitors should expect social distancing and mask requirements. Keep reading to check out what the syrup season has to offer.
Don't forget to take advantage of the final weeks of winter with our Winter Activities Guide. Looking forward to the new warmer season? Find fun things to do around Philly in our Spring Activities Guide.
Please keep your family and others safe by wearing masks and maintaining social distancing measures. If an event appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our event calendar to find something else to do.
