28th Annual Maple Fest on Chester Hill
Chester is celebrating the beginning of spring with their annual Maple Festival. On Saturday, March 16th from 9am-3pm, families are invited to visit Chester Center to experience old time sugaring first hand and relive simpler times. Families can begin their day with a traditional Country Breakfast, served continuously from 9am ‘til noon at the First Congregational Church (>$). After breakfast, visit local artisans and craftspeople, at the old schoolhouse across the road. Begin the afternoon listening to the sound of the Pioneer Valley Fiddlers, scheduled to play at the church at 12noon. All day long, wagons pulled by tractors or a team of draft horses will carry guests back and forth to High Meadows Sugarhouse to watch the production of maple syrup.
