50th inspired – Maple Syrup Festival

 

Did you know the For-Mar’s Maple Syrup program has been taking place at For-Mar since we opened 50 years ago! Join us at For-Mar for a firsthand look at how one of Michigan’s most historically significant natural resources, maple syrup, is made. From tapping to pancake topping, see it all. Trained For-Mar staff will be on hand to share information about winter tree ID.

You are going to FLIP over the addition to this year’s Maple Syrup Festival!!!  We have invited Chris Cakes of Michigan, the Pancake Flipping Experts and Guinness World Record Title Holder, to join us for a pancake FEAST!  The pancake flipping demo and eating last 30 minutes. Sign up to participate at one of the following times: 11am, 11:30am, 12pm, 12:30pm, 1pm, or 1:30pm.  Taste test fresh For-Mar syrup and try your hand at catching flying pancakes and eating them too!  Please make sure you are at the Visitors Center location at you designated time.
