Sundays, March 1, 8 & 15 • Noon to 4 PM • Swine Creek Reservation
Get a sweet taste of how maple sugaring methods have evolved, from the Native American tradition to modern methods, during our annual Sap’s-a-Risin’! celebrations, held in the very park where we produce maple syrup for your kitchen table each spring!
Activities include gathering sap in the sugarbush with the help of a horse-drawn sap sled; trying tapping, gathering and boiling methods used throughout history; seeing sap boiling in the sugar house and tasting what’s cooking; and warming up in the lodge with free maple treats and live music by The Real Deal String Band (March 1), Mr. Haney String Band (March 8) and The Woodpeckers (March 15).
Fun for the whole family in the sugarbush…and entirely FREE!
Did you know…? Swine Creek Reservation is also a stop on both the statewide Maple Madness Tour and the local Northeast Ohio Maple Tour on March 8 and 15, if you’d like to make a whole maple-themed day of it.
