What you'll do

This is a sappy story and it'll surely put you in a sticky situation (couldn't resist)! Come have a fun A to Z experience tapping maple trees and making real maple syrup in Chicago! We begin at the source by tapping the maple trees during the short window when the sap flows. We then collect the sap and bring it back to vK Urban Farms/The Vaudeville and begin the process of boiling the sap down into syrup. This is done over open fire which gives the syrup it's signature hint of smokiness. Finally we'll bottle the delicious product and send you home with your very own jar of home made Urban Syrup! Bring the family, bring your mom, bring your friends, bring your friends moms! Come for an amazing, unique day, gathering, creating, and experiencing!
Other things to note
We have easy parking options available. This is a family friendly event!
