Love is in the maple-scented air at Rowe Woods! During this maple tasting experience, we’ll tap into how people’s love for maple syrup has changed through time. You’ll savor foods and stories from the original sugarmakers, the Native American, to early settlers, to sugar rationing during World War II. Grab your partner’s hand as you head into the sugarbush to gather sap under lantern light. Sip maple cocktails while watching a cooking demonstration and exploring present day gourmet “not just for pancakes” uses for maple syrup. 

Light maple-themed appetizers and drinks will be offered at this program. While we cannot promise to accommodate every food allergy or dietary restriction, we'll certainly try our best. If you have a food allergy or dietary restriction that you would like our staff to know about, please email Jason Neumann at no later than Friday, February 3 at 5 pm.

Member tickets are:  27.50 and nonmember tickets are 37.50, (includes admission)

We'll gather together at our historic Krippendorf Lodge at our Rowe Woods location.

What to expect:

This experience will take place mostly outdoors, but we'll adjust for colder temperatures by ducking into heated spaces during the program.

We’ll walk for 0.5-0.75 mile.

Dress for the weather and be prepared for possible muddy conditions.

As with all of our events and programs, pets are not permitted.
