Once again this year the Stamford Museum and Nature Center is hosting the 8th annual Maple Sugar Festival in their new Maple Sugar House and Farmhouse from 11 am to 3 pm on March 9 and 10. Join staff as they make their own line of maple syrup from the 200+ mature maple trees found here on our 118-acre facility. They are just one of only two official maple sugar producers in Fairfield County!
Guests are invited to the Farmhouse Sunday Pancake Brunch for stacks of hot off the griddle pancakes drizzled with warm “maple gold” made right at the Nature Center. Guest will also enjoy a host of fun family activities including face painting, arts and crafts, live music, and of course a visit to the Center’s Heckscher Farm animals and Heckscher’s WILD creatures!
Another highlight of this event is to sample a delectable array of original Maple Sugar-inspired treats prepared by talented aspiring chefs at our Teen Chef Challenge on Saturday in the Farmhouse – and vote for your favorite! And, don’t forget to purchase the freshly tapped Stamford Museum & Nature Center maple syrup that can be enjoyed long after this event is over.
The cost of this event is $6 for members and $12 per person for non-members; the farmhouse pancake brunch on Sunday from 11 am to 2 pm is an additional $6 per person.
