Maple Sugarbush Festival & Pancake Breakfast 2019

Saturday, March 2, 2019 - 7:00 am to 1:00 pm

Cost: $5 – $8

41st Annual Mapel Sugarbush Festival & Pancake Breakfast

An Evansville Tradition

Celebrate the maple sugar harvest from the trees of Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve at our 40th Annual Maple Sugarbush Festival! Bring the family to enjoy a hearty breakfast, including sausage, all-you-can-eat pancakes with pure maple syrup, and juice, milk, and/or coffee. After breakfast, take a guided tour through the woods to observe how sap is harvested from the sugar maple trees, and then visit the sugar shack to witness the process of boiling the sap into pure, delicious maple syrup. Family-friendly activities add to the festivities. Maple confections will be for sale as well.

You and your family will have an opportunity to sample some of our home grown maple syrup from Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve during the event.

We welcome you to join us for this local tradition of discovery and fun in the Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve!
