Maple Sugars Sundays at SM&NC

Maple Sugars Sundays at SM&NC

In lieu of its traditional First County Bank Maple Sugar Festival, the Stamford Museum & Nature Center will be celebrating the season by bundling all the fun and games of a mini-festival into a single admission price, three Sundays this winter: February 21 & 28 and March 7.

Each Sunday, grounds will open at 10 am with added attractions, enhanced programming, and fun seasonal offerings for the whole family until 2 pm. Standard admission rates apply after 2 pm. This year, online pre-registration is required to ensure a safe and socially distanced experience at www.stamfordmuseum.org/fcbfest.

Sponsored by First County Bank, the series of Maple Sugar Fest Sundays will feature a wide variety of activities including traditional favorites like tree tapping demonstrations, music, animal interactions, free popcorn, a sock skating rink and children’s game zone, with food trucks on-site including a waffle truck, and SM&NC’s very own line of maple syrup available for purchase.

“Year after year, we are proud to have a long-standing presence in support of the SM&NC’s Maple Sugar festivities,” said Robert Granata, Chairman & CEO of First County Bank.

“We’re one of only two official maple syrup producers in Fairfield County,” added Melissa H. Mulrooney, Executive Director & CEO of the SM&NC. “We invite the public to join us as we make our very own line of maple syrup from the many mature maple trees found right here on our 118-acre campus.”

Attendees are encouraged to visit the Museum’s Bendel Mansion to enjoy the current exhibition, “Global Garden: Resonant Beauty,” a collection of orchid paintings by artist Patricia Laspino and the first full exhibition of the Museum’s 85th anniversary year.

The cost of admission is all-inclusive: $10 per person for SM&NC members of all ages, $20 per person for non-members, with free entry options for SM&NC Family Plus and Director’s Circle members. Attendees who sign up for membership on a fest day are refunded the cost of their ticket according to membership level. Pre-register now to celebrate the sweetness of the maple sugaring season by visiting www.stamfordmuseum.org/fcbfest.
