Kings Landing’s 34th Annual Sugar Bush

March 18 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The annual sugar bush experiences will be held at Kings Landing on March 11 and 12, and March 18 and 19, each day from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

A pancake breakfast will be served each day from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This fundraising event to support the York Sunbury Search & Rescue has become a fun, spring tradition at Kings Landing. The breakfast is $11 per adult and $8 per child at the door. Skip the line up and head directly to the dining room by purchasing advanced tickets by contacting York Sunbury Search & Rescue at (506) 206-6365. Advanced tickets are $10 per adult and $7 per child.

“The annual sugar bush event is a major fund raiser for York Sunbury Search & Rescue,” says Greg Smith, public relations for York Sunbury Search & Rescue. “It is a very fun event for everyone involved, a tradition for many families over the years.  We hope our 2017 sugar bush is filled with good food, conversation and many smiles.”

Kings Landing has activities planned for both weekends, including encampments in the Village, snowshoeing, traditional fare and children’s activities at the King’s Head Inn, and, weather-permitting, even sleigh rides.

The highlight for many will be the 19th century sugaring demonstration with the sweet taste of maple candy on the snow.

“The sugar bush experience really represents the start of spring for many guests to our museum,” said Kevin Cormier, executive director at Kings Landing. “If you are looking for an activity for the family, interested in discovering your own past, or if you just want a reason to get outside, the sugar bush weekends are perfect for all ages.”

Admission fees to the site activities are $12 per family, $7 per adult and $3.50 per child.  Maple candy on the snow will be sold for $2 per stick.

Kings Landing is located 20 minutes west of Fredericton, Exit 253 of the Trans-Canada Highway. For more information, call 506-363-4999 or follow @KingsLandingNB on Facebook and Instagram.
