This March, the Adirondacks of northern New York will welcome maple fans at sugar bushes throughout the region to celebrate, taste and tap maple tree’s during New York State Maple Weekends.
New York State Maple Weekends offer hands-on maple sugaring demonstrations, sugar bush tours, tastings and local events March 16-17 and March 23-24 from 10 am until 4 pm each day throughout the Adirondack Region.
A must-see for any maple fan is the Adirondacks Tug Hill Region’s American Maple Museum in Croghan. Home to the Maple Hall of Fame, old-fashioned maple sugaring equipment and exhibits depicting the history and evolution of maple syrup production, the museum showcases Native American sugaring techniques and modern manufacturing methods. The museum welcomes visitors with a pancake breakfast, demonstrations and tastings during both Maple Weekends.
