Mumford, N.Y. - Genesee Country Village & Museum in Mumford, NY, invites visitors to celebrate maple sugaring season in NY State at the annual Maple Sugar Festival, coming up March 18, 19, 25 & 26.
Follow tap lines along the Maple History Trail to the modern-day sugarhouse in the Museum’s Nature Center, see traditional methods of sap collection and sugaring in a 19th-century sugar camp, and explore the Historic Village to see maple-inspired “receipts” cooking in historic kitchens.
