Oxford, Ohio's Maple Syrup Festival

Come join Oxford, Ohio for one of our most beloved winter events. Celebrating its 54th 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 2020 those dates are as follows: Saturday, March 7th & Sunday, March 8th.

The March 14th and 15th dates have been canceled due to travel restrictions recommended by Governor Dewine to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

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 $7.50/adults and $5.50/kids (ages 10 and under).
