Several folks have called to ask if we will still hold the festival this weekend
because of the weather.
THE FESTIVAL GOES ON.
Parking will be quite muddy but we are prepared for that and will help anyone who gets stuck. It doesn't sound like it should be too cold and all of our indoor activities will be held - store, dining room, working evaporator, Music Cabin, The Treehouse (kids building) and the indoor vendors. Quite a few of our outdoor vendors have understandably cancelled. We will run the outdoor activities as the crowd size indicates. This includes the tractor rides, merry-go-round, tomahawk throw, crosscut saw and branding iron, Jacob's Ladder, children's game area and straw maze.
Come visit us and experience a real working maple sugar camp!!!

The sugarhouse, with steam rolling from the cupola and sparks emitting from the tall smoke stack, during the 2003 festival. This picture was taken on February 23rd, a cold, snowy day with a low festival attendance. The next weekend, March 1st and 2nd, saw near normal crowds. We made about 700 gallons of maple syrup in 2003.
The steamy, wood-fired evaporator is where we boil the maple sap into thick, mouth-watering maple syrup for our customers to enjoy. During the festival we offer self-guided tours of this area and if time permits, guided tours. The site of much activity during the festival, it is a popular spot for both staff and festival-goers to warm up.
