Riveredge Maple Sugarin’ Festival

March 18, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

$6 – $10

Riveredge’s Maple Sugarin’ Festival will take you on a journey through the sugarbush where you will experience the maple sugarin’ season like never before. Along the way, you’ll learn how to tap a maple tree, observe live demonstrations, participate in hands-on activities, enjoy music, games, and so much more! When you reach the evaporator, you’ll see how sap is transformed into syrup and enjoy our famous pancakes and 100% pure Riveredge maple syrup. Lunch & refreshments are available for purchase (including a special serving from The Fermentorium for the “kids at heart”).

Tree tapping treks
Historical legends and experiences including Native American Sugarin’, Pioneer Sugarin’ Techniques, and the Legend Tree
A live blacksmith/branding demo (brand your own tree cookie to take home with you!)
