Maple Syrup Festival

Saturday, March 16, 2019
11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Fenner Nature Center invites everyone to come and explore some of the natural and cultural history surrounding Michigan’s own “liquid gold” at the annual Maple Syrup Festival.  The festival offers numerous fun and educational demonstrations and activities for the whole family. Spend the day exploring how sap is turned into sweet treats like syrup, maple crème, and candy.

In Fenner’s own sugar bush, experience the history of making maple syrup with hands-on demonstrations throughout the day.  Learn about some of the tools and techniques that various cultures through history have used to harvest the sap and convert it into maple syrup and sugar. School and group tours are welcome. During these tours, students and visitors can help Fenner naturalists tap trees and collect sap.

While at the festival, visitors can support Fenner Conservancy, the non-profit that now manages the nature center, by purchasing a ticket for “Flapjacks for Fenner!” Visitors will have to beware of flying flapjacks as “Chris Cakes” serves them up with their unique serving style.  Tickets are $8, no advanced purchases, and include All-You-Can-Eat pancakes served with a side of sausage, glass of orange juice, and coffee.
