Annual maple sugaring festivities return to Swine Creek Reservation

It’s hands-on, educational, inspirational and celebrational – it’s Geauga Park District’s rich tradition of FREE maple sugaring events at Swine Creek Reservation in Middlefield, and fun in the park doesn’t get much more family-friendly than the annual Sap’s-a-Risin’ celebration!

Festivities include sap-gathering in the sugarbush with a horse-drawn sap sled, sugar house tours with sample tastes of fresh syrup, and historical stations with costumed interpreters displaying and demonstrating maple sugaring methods from prehistoric to modern day.

Plus, visit Swine Creek Lodge, which opened last year, to warm up with free maple treats and live music  with The Real Deal String Band. With a stop here, you can also make a day of it to see others’ sugaring operations, too.
