People come from great distances to cross country ski, snowshoe or drive from inn-to-inn along the trails of this 65 KM network to enjoy the spectacular scenery, warm hospitality, and great chocolate treats at stops throughout the network, most located along the trails. This may be the only day of the year when chocolate indulgence is totally guilt-free! Chocoholics cross-country ski or snowshoe the trails to enjoy chocolate prepared every way imaginable. Many return year after year to enjoy the Chocolate Festival, often returning with a larger group of friends each time.

(Weekends only) Visitors to Old Sturbridge Village will be greeted by the sweet smell of wood smoke mixed with maple syrup as historians demonstrate maple sugar making at the Village’s own working “Sugar Camp.” On weekend days in March, see maple sugaring as it was done in early 19th-century rural New England and learn why the final product historically was sugar, not syrup. See demonstrations of the traditional Native American methods, early 19th-century New England, 20th century metal buckets and contemporary tubing. Old Sturbridge Village is the largest outdoor history museum in the northeast and portrays life in a New England village in the 1830s.
