The Sapsucker Festival, previously called the Maple Sugar Festival, is a free day of sap-themed activities. There will be sugar maple tree tapping demonstrations and sampling stations, live owl presentations, an indoor kids station full of crafts and games and a $5 pancake breakfast.
Attendees can learn how birds and animals rely on the local trees for food, like their sap, and shelter. Guided tours of the 175-acre property will be available, and guests can learn how maple syrup has been made over the years.
At Fox Chase Farm's Maple Sugar Day, guests will learn how maple syrup and sugar are made on a "maple tour." Families can also attend maple candy demonstrations, learn about sugaring techniques and how to identify maple trees, do crafts, hear stories and sample pancakes with pure maple syrup.
If you've always wanted to learn how sap becomes sugar, now is your chance to experience one of winter's wonders.
