Since 1796, Sugaring Off has been one of Central New York’s sweetest goodbyes to winter and the tastiest harbingers of spring.
Please join us April 13-14, 2013 for the 37th Annual Sugaring Off at Herkimer Home State Historic Site. This great social event has hundreds of happy visitors who join costumed staff and volunteers in recreating the taste, aroma, and spirit of a colonial maple sugaring bee.
Living History demonstrations, war games and tactical demonstrations will be conducted each day. Special programming includes a presentation titled “Movements of the NY Line in 1778” by Glenn Hunger on Saturday, and a military skirmish “Raid on the Sugar Bush” at 2pm on Sunday.
