The annual Maple Sugarin’ Festival will take place on the grounds of Hashawha Environmental Center on Sunday, March 4th from 10:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
A $4 pancake breakfast with real maple syrup will be available all day. The center will also be serving maple pit beef sandwiches, hot dogs, fries, chicken strips, and a variety of delicious desserts made with real maple syrup.
Located off of Route 97, north of Westminster, the festival celebrates the American tradition of collecting maple sap and boiling it down to rich maple syrup. Activities and demonstrations will take place both indoors and out that include tree tapping, sap boiling, wagon rides, planetarium shows, and an indoor children’s activity area with crafts, games, and face painting. Costumed interpreters performing chores of the early 1800s will staff a living history area and feature a log cabin of that era located on the property.
One may purchase maple syrup, candy, and various items from craft vendors. This is an event with something for the entire family.
The admission charge is $3/per vehicle, vans included. Hashawha is located at 300 John Owings Road, off of Route 97 North, outside Westminster, Maryland.
