SWEET MAPLE SUGARING FUN
Mar 1, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Something for everyone at the 34th annual Sap’s-a-Risin’! celebration
It’s hands-on, educational, inspirational and celebrational – it’s Geauga Park District’s rich tradition of FREE maple sugaring-themed special events at Swine Creek Reservation in Middlefield!
Fun in the park doesn’t get much more family friendly than our FREE Sap’s-a-Risin’! celebration, now in its 34rd year! Festivities on three Sundays – March 1, 8 and 15, all from noon to 4 p.m. – include sap-gathering in the sugarbush with a horse-drawn sap sled, sugar house tours with sample tastes of fresh syrup, and historical stations with costumed interpreters displaying and demonstrating maple sugaring methods from prehistoric to modern day. In the toasty lodge with its large crackling fireplace, also find free maple treats and live music by The Real Deal String Band on March 1, The Mr. Haney String Band on March 8, and The Woodpeckers on March 15.
Swine Creek Reservation is also a featured stop on two drive-it-yourself tours on March 8 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.: the Ohio Maple Producers’ Maple Madness Tour and the Maple Producers of Northeast Ohio’s “How Sweet It Is” Drive-It-Yourself. Tour maps with complete lists of participating sugar houses are available at ohiomaple.org and mpneoh.com.
Swine Creek Reservation is located at 16004 Hayes Road in Middlefield.
