Maple Sugaring DaysMaple Sugaring Days

March 6-7 & 13-14

For most of its 60-year history, KNC has offered the sweet experience of Maple Sugaring. The earliest years featured simple demonstrations of maple sap cooked over a fire in iron kettles, gradually expanding into a 2-day Maple Sugar Festival. This year, KNC will offer a safe streamlined version with guided sugaring tours (registration required), Maple Market, and Story walk trail.
