Come join Oxford, Ohio for one of our most beloved winter events. Celebrating its 55th year, the Maple Syrup Festival is hosted on the grounds of the beautiful Hueston Woods State Park. This festival is held the first two weekends in March, and this year in 2022 those dates are as follows: March 5th - 6th and March 12 - 13th

BREAKFAST | 8:00 am - 1:00 pm | Hueston Woods Lodge

Each day begins with an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast at the Trailblazing Dining Room inside the Hueston Woods Lodge (5201 Lodge Road, College Corner) from 8:00 am - 1:00 pm. Cost is $8/adults and $6/kids (ages 10 and under).

HAYRIDES & TOURS | 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm | Hueston Woods Beach

Meet at the Hueston Woods Beach parking lot to board a FREE hayride. This ride will take you to the starting point for the guided hike. During your hike through the Big Woods (a designated State Nature Preserve), you'll learn all about the art of syrup production.

The tour ends at the Hueston Woods Sugar House, where you can sample and purchase syrup, popcorn, beverages, and more. No dogs or other pets are allowed on tour.

NATURE CENTER EXHIBITS | 10:00 am - 4:30 pm | Hueston Woods Nature Center

Stop by the Hueston Woods Nature Center for both indoor and outdoor exhibits about reptiles, foxes, and birds of prey! There will be a professional naturalist on-site to answer all of your nature-related questions.

We hope to see you at this year’s Maple Syrup Festival!
