Celebrate the sweetness of the season at KNC’s 54th Annual Maple Sugar Festival. Since 1966, Maple Sugar Festival has been a time for families to experience the maple sugaring process up close. Taste the sugary deliciousness of pure maple syrup on top of your pancakes and enjoy a cup of maple-flavored coffee to begin your day.

Head outside to learn about the wonders of a Michigan maple sugar bush as a tour guide takes you through the process step-by-step. Some of our Animal Ambassadors will even make appearances throughout the day – don’t miss an opportunity to get your photo taken with one of our amazing Birds of Prey! As the first agricultural crop of the season, maple sugaring has been an important part of Michigan’s history since colonial times.

Be sure to visit the historic DeLano Homestead to experience maple sugaring and life in the 1800s. With a costume photobooth, horse-drawn wagon rides, and live demonstrations by blacksmiths and fiber artists, there is sure to be something for everyone!
