Maple Syrup Family Day
This event has expired. This may be a recurring event, so please check the calendar in the future for updated occurrences.
The Richfield Historical Society (RHS) invites all to welcome spring at its annual Maple Syrup Family Day. Admission is FREE.
Spring brings a whirlwind of activity to the RHS sugar shack, where the sap collected from maple trees in the park is cooked into syrup. Syrup-making demonstrations will be held throughout the day, with discussions of the history of maple sap products. Syrup will also be available for sale, while supplies last.
This year’s event will feature a pancake and sausage breakfast with real maple syrup, served from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. We had a great turnout for breakfast at last year’s event, so we’ve expanded our seating and serving capacities. Hot dogs and chili will be served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Our wonderful maple cotton candy will also be available throughout the day.
The Pioneer Homestead area will be open, with demonstrations of lard rendering, old-fashioned cooking, and weaving on the antique loom. The kids will enjoy watching the chicks in the barn! Stop by the Blacksmith Shop for demonstrations of the smithy’s art, and peruse the items for sale.
Funds raised at the Maple Syrup Family Day and other RHS events support the Society's educational programs and maintenance of the Richfield Historical Park.
