Maple Syrup Festival at Malabar Farm
March 7 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until March 15, 2020
This family festival (held continuously since 1977) always occurs on the first two weekends in March, from 12 noon to 4 PM each weekend day. This free festival is a great opportunity for families and friends to step back in time, learn, and enjoy the history of Ohio syrup making at Malabar Farm State Park.
The festival includes demonstrations of sugaring techniques from the early days, when Ohio was home to Native Americans, through present day. A self-guided tour of the sugar camp and sugarhouse will reveal the evolution of sugaring equipment and how maple sap is transformed into maple syrup. A peek inside the summer bell house, behind the Pugh Log Cabin, will take you back to Ohio’s past. Kids and adults will also enjoy the horse-drawn wagon rides to the sugar camp provided by the Central Ohio Draft Horse Association.
