It is one of Upstate’s longest Springtime festivals!

The Herkimer Home Historic Site in Little Falls (Herkimer County) will host its annual family Sugaring Off Festival on the weekend of April 13-14th.

Since 1796, Sugaring Off has been one of Central New York’s sweetest goodbyes to winter and the tastiest harbingers of spring.  This great family social event has hundreds of happy visitors who join costumed staff and volunteers in recreating the taste, aroma, and spirit of a colonial maple sugaring bee. There will be displays of sap boiling, coopering, Militia drilling, quilting, making jack wax, taking wagon rides andviewing  a raid on a sugarbush!
