Maple Sugaring Festival at GCV&MMumford, N.Y. – In celebration of the return of maple sugaring season in New York State, Genesee Country Village & Museum will host its annual Maple Sugar Festival on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, March 15, 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24.

Visitors are invited to explore the Museum’s modern-day sugarhouse where fresh syrup will be boiling, then journey into a 19th-century sugar camp staffed by costumed historical educators to learn about the techniques and tools used by early settlers used to collect sap and make maple sugar.
