UMaine Moves Maple Syrup Celebration to March 30

Sap is not yet flowing freely so the University of Maine is moving its Maple Sugar Celebration from Sunday, March 23 to Sunday, March 30.

Festivities, scheduled for 1-3 p.m., begin with a video titled “The Maple Sugaring Story” at UMaine’s Page Farm and Home Museum on Portage Road. Children in grades K-5 are invited to take part in learning activities and games and to hear stories about one of Maine’s oldest traditions and seasonal business enterprises.

Guests can caravan to UMaine’s Thomas J. Corcoran Sugar House on Lucy Thompson Road, off College Avenue Extension. There will be a guided walking tour of the sugar bush and sugar house, where sap is simmered into syrup. Attendees can take part in the Sugar on Snow party and sample sweet syrup right from the evaporator, served on ice cream with a dill pickle and doughnut.

Space is limited; preregistration is required. Cost is $4. For more information, to register, or to request a disability accommodation, call 207.581.4100. Children must be chaperoned by an adult with transportation.
