Maple Syrup Days
March 7 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm ESTFree
Come share in a true farm-to-table experience. Every year the sugar maple trees at McCloud Nature Park produce sap with a high sugar content. We tap these trees by boring holes in their trunks and when daytime temperatures increase, sap runs into the attached buckets. Staff and volunteers collect the sap daily, which is then placed in an evaporator where it is reduced into the delicious maple syrup. It’s an amazing process that visitors can witness and participate in first-hand!
Our 10th Annual Maple Syrup Days will take place on March 7 and 14, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
This event is FREE to attend, appropriate for all ages, and no advance registration is required.
The station presentations begin every 20 minutes, guided hikes are offered approximately every 30 minutes, and there is an on-going scavenger hunt and maple syrup story walk. Please allow at least 1 hour to enjoy the festival.
The popular Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser organized by the Parks Foundation of Hendricks County is concurrent to the festival. Be sure to reserve your spots at the table! Click here for more information.
