    Maple Syrup Festival at Malabar Farm
    3954 Bromfield Road, Lucas, Ohio 44843

    38th Annual Maple Syrup Festival

    Event Dates:
    March 1, 2, 8, 9 2014
    12 p.m.- 4 p.m.

    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. Presented by the Richland County Museum, the summer bell house is now set up as a pioneer’s cabin, where kids and adults can take part in daily pioneer chores like washing clothes, tending fire, making candles, and cooking. Kids and adults will also enjoy the horse-drawn wagon rides to the sugar camp provided by the Central Ohio Draft Horse Association.

    Free samples of maple syrup will be available at the sugar house. Pure Ohio maple syrup, homemade Maple Walnut Fudge, Maple Cotton Candy, Maple Popcorn, and other maple products will be on sale during the event, and in the Malabar Farm Gift Shop throughout the season. Live musical entertainment will be provided along with light refreshments and snacks during the festival in the Pugh Log Cabin located near the event.

    Bromfield’s historical 32-room mansion will be open for hosted, self-paced tours from 12 noon to 4 PM . Tickets can be purchased in the Gift Shop.

    The Malabar Farm Restaurant will be open (as it is throughout the year) on Tuesday-Thursday 11 AM-8 PM, Fridays and Saturdays 11 AM to 9 PM; and Sundays 11 AM to 7 PM. .The Malabar Farm Restaurant will offer lunch and dinner specials featuring Malabar Farm products and maple syrup both weekends –kids menu available.
