Maple Sugar Festival This Weekend

Maple Sugar Festival This Weekend

Saturday, March 1 & Sunday, March 2 2014, 11 am to 3 pm





Celebrate

the sweetness of the maple sugaring season as this annual family favorite

returns to the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. Visit the little red sugarhouse on

Heckscher Farm and see firsthand how sap is turned into maple syrup. Witness

how trees are tapped and sap is collected, make a maple-themed craft, go on a

scavenger hunt, have your face painted, sing and dance to live music, and more.

On

Saturday, sample delicious dishes from local teen chefs featuring SM&NC

maple syrup in First County Bank’s Teen Chefs Challenge and vote for your

favorite! On Sunday, enjoy the popular pancake brunch. Don’t forget to purchase

a pint of pure maple syrup, made fresh from the trees at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center.
