Maple Weekend in Warner

Friday, March 22nd & Saturday, March 23rd

Press Release

Pancake Breakfast, Tours of Sap Houses & So Much More!

Warner’s maple producers join with the town’s organizations and businesses to create a town-wide maple celebration.  The weekend begins on Friday evening with an art show reception at Main Street Bookends, followed by the Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki Trio in concert at the Warner Town Hall.  

The action picks up bright and early each morning with a pancake breakfast brought to you by the United Church of Warner and the Warner Historical Society.  Breakfast features maple syrup made in Warner.

Nine sap houses will be demonstrating how they turn sap into maple syrup and other maple treats: Baker’s Syrup, Bates Maple Syrup, Beaver Meadowbrook Farm, Blackwater Maples, Courser Farm Sugar Kings, Kearsarge Gore Farm, Kimball’s Sugar House, Rogers Maple Syrup and Turyn’s Tap’n & Sap’n.   Each sap house has a unique personality and they’ll have different treats, so you’ll want to visit as many as you can. Maps are available at the Town Hall, Pillsbury Free Library, Main Street Bookends, Schoodacs and at the sap houses. Have the sap houses note your visit on your map. Afterwards, show the folks at Schoodacs your map to get a maple surprise!

There are lots more family activities around town: children’s crafts at the Pillsbury Free Library, read-a-loud maple sugaring stories at Main Street Bookends, learn to identify maple leaves and bark and make a mokuk (a bark bucket to store maple sugar) at the Nature Discovery Center and see a traditional Native American method of turning sap into syrup, sample Native foods and snowshoe on the grounds of Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum.  The NH Telephone Museum and Warner Public Market will be open and Country Cobwebs will have maple products for sale.

When you’re hungry, dine on delicious food made with maple syrup at The Local, Foothills, Charlie Macs Pizzeria, Schoolhouse Café, or Schoodacs Coffee House.  But leave room for a spaghetti supper Saturday night by the Merrimack County 4-H Ox Bows at the Town Hall.
