March is “Maple Season”…a great reason to get to the Monadnock Region and enjoy a get-away.
Looking for a get-away in March? In addition to the Arts on Screen series continuing at Peterborough Players and the live music events at Harlow’s Pub, there is also a special appearance by Ken Sheldon (of Frost Heaves fame) and lots of sweet maple syrup.
March 24th & 25th is Maple Syrup Open House Weekend. The Maple Sugar houses all over the state are open for the weekend inviting and welcoming the public to learn about the maple syrup making process, a chance to taste some of the many sweet products they make and of course an opportunity to stock up on syrup for the coming year 🙂
In addition to the open houses, Stonewall Farm near Keene is hosting their annual Sap Gathering Contest where teams of horses (from around the state) compete by racing around a tree’d course gathering sap buckets and returning them to the boiling house. It is lots of fun for the entire family!
The Waterhouse Restaurant in Peterborough, NH presents Ken Sheldon’s Round the Mountain: fine dining, music, and laughter with “NH’s answer to Garrison Keillor.” Ken Sheldon has appeared on New Hampshire Chronicle and in the pages of Yankee Magazine and New Hampshire Magazine. He is the creator of the hit variety show Frost Heaves and has traveled across New England as Yankee storyteller Fred Marple. He will be joined by David Nelson, providing musical and comical support.
