Come join Oxford, Ohio for one of the most beloved festivals of the year, the Maple Syrup Festival! Celebrating its 52nd year, the Maple Syrup Festival is hosted on the grounds of the beautiful Hueston Woods State Park. This year’s festival will be held on Saturday, March 3, Sunday, March 4, Saturday, March 10 and Sunday, March 11 from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm.
To start off your memorable day right, come to the Trailblazer Dining Room inside the Hueston Woods Lodge and Conference Center for an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast from 8:00 am - 1:00 pm. Cost is $7.50 for adults and $5.50 for kids ages 10 and under. And of course, some sweet maple syrup will be the perfect topping for that stack of pancakes!
Maple Syrup tours around Hueston Woods State Park will take place from 12:00 - 4:00 pm. Kick off the tour with a fun hayride that will begin at the Beach parking lot, a new starting location from previous years. After the hayride, enjoy a guided hike through the “Big Woods” and learn about the art of maple syrup production. Learn some facts about the cultural and natural history of the area as well!
End your day with a visit to Hueston Woods’ Nature Center! With both indoor and outdoor exhibits of reptiles, birds of prey and more, the Nature Center is the place to go to get your questions answered about all things nature within the park. The Nature Center will be open from 10:00 am - 4:30 pm.
