2021 MapleFest

March 20, 2021 - Sharon, CT

Join Sharon Audubon Center for a fun-filled day of celebrating everything Maple! Enjoy guided, 45-minute tours of our center’s sugaring operation, including a working sugarhouse and a re-creation of Native American and early colonial sugaring methods. Watch as pure sugar maple sap is collected from the trees and turned into delicious maple syrup. Wear warm clothes and boots, as much of the tour is outdoors. Sharon Audubon Center's maple syrup will be available for purchase after the tour, while supplies last.

Participants must pre-register for a time-slot for their tour. Each time slot will include up to 8 individuals plus one guide. Participants should arrive 10-15 minutes before their start time in order to check in. Everyone is required to wear a mask and practice social distancing while on the tour.

  • Admission: $7 Adults, $5 Kids (2-12 years)
  • Pre-registration is required
  • To register, email Wendy Miller at
