Maple Syrup Day

   

Kentucky Maple Day is a celebration and educational event all rolled into one.  The event will take place on February 6, 2021, during the peak of the Kentucky maple sugaring season.  Producers from across the state open their sugarhouses and operations for the public to learn about maple sugaring, as well as purchase pure Kentucky maple syrup and treats made with maple syrup.  Attendees typically get an up close look at how maple sap is collected and then turned into that sweet, delicious syrup.  Each maple syrup producer is different so careful planning can allow visitors to attend several sugarhouses to enjoy a variety of how sap becomes syrup.  The biggest part of the tour will be around the evaporator.  This is where the maple sap is boiled, the sugar in the sap is concentrated, thus resulting in a golden maple syrup for the table.  At this point, visitors will learn how maple syrup is made and bottled for retail.  During the Maple Day, operations may also offer tours of their sugar bush, the location where the trees are tapped and the sap is collected.  Also, some sugar makers will have product for sale when the tour is complete.  This is a great day to get out and enjoy Kentucky's premiere maple sugaring event.  

 

The list below are from the 2020 Maple Day.  If you are a maple producer and would like to participate in this event in 2021, contact your County Extension Agent to be added to the list of sugarhouses that will be open for the 2021 Kentucky Maple Day.
