Maple Days at Old Sturbridge Village

Maple Days at Old Sturbridge Village runs Fridays – Sundays, February 23rd – March 17th.

For many at Old Sturbridge Village, the first whiff of spring isn’t the aroma of spring flowers – it’s the smell of wood smoke and maple syrup, a sure sign that the sap is rising and spring is on the way. Join OSV for “Maple Days” select dates in February and March, when the Village’s working sugar camp demonstrates maple sugaring as it was done in early 19th-century New England.

Join OSV for Maple Days:
  • See maple sugaring as it was done in early 19th-century rural New England in OSV’s working sugar camp.
  • See the entire sugar-making process, from tapping the trees to “sugaring off”.
  • Learn why maple sugar was more commonly used than maple syrup in early New England.
  • Costumed historians will also cook period foods made with maple products by the hearth at the Village’s Freeman Farm.
  • In addition, the tinner and cooper will be making maple-related items.
  • A wide variety of maple products are available at the Ox & Yoke Mercantile, including syrup, maple-scented bath and body products, maple candy, maple recipe books, and more.
  • On Saturdays and Sundays during Maple Days, join us in Ox & Yoke Café from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. for a special Waffle Bar, featuring made-to-order waffles and a variety of scrumptious toppings to create your own delicious masterpiece! The Waffle Bar is $12.99 per person, and members save 10%.
