Maple Sugar Day & Pancake Breakfast
Sunday, February 24th, 2019 at 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Don't miss our annual Maple Sugar Day! The process of tapping maple trees, collecting the sap, and making maple syrup (one of the many uses of maple sap) is actually quite simple. It does, however, take some time and a willingness to get outdoors and experience this miracle of nature. Join us as we go through this cool process of extraction on our own maple trees and sample sap through the process to syrup!
This year's event will again feature a limited space Pancake Breakfast that will run two hours before the main event. Again space is limited and requires advance registration, but oh is it worth it! We will be serving made to order pancakes and other breakfast sides.

Please register by February 10, 2019. You must register for each event individually. Limited space for Pancake Breakfast so register early!

Pancake Breakfast - $10/person
Seating at 11:00 am
Outdoor Maple Sugar Tapping - $5/person
Programming begins at 1:00 pm
