Solin Family Sugarbush
The Tappening is an outdoor event celebrating spring and maple syrup in our sugarbush north of Antigo. It’s going to be an amazing and inspiring evening, and we’re excited to have you join us. We're honored to be working with an all-star team to create The Tappening. The event will feature a tour of our maple syrup operation, a 3-course meal by Stacked Farm + Food, cocktails by Copper & Pines featuring Northern Oasis Spirits, beer by Cocoon Brewing, music by Sarah Crow, bonfire, and maple syrup cooking - all set in the Solin Family Sugarbush. Thanks to Quiet Creative Design for the design of all of our materials!

*this is a set menu designed by the chef to feature seasonably, locally available foods. Vegetarian options are not available due to increased time and price in preparing additional items. Primary menu items come from Stack Farm & Food farm (pork, vegetables, greens, herbs, kraut), the Solin family sugarbush (maple syrup, sap), or are foraged (hickory nuts, hen of the woods mushrooms). It's possible that adjustments to the final menu will be made based on availability of ingredients.
The Tappening will be held in our sugarbush on our family’s land north of Antigo, WI (N6590 County Road V, see the map below).
In the event of inclement weather, we will have tents and heaters. We do reserve the right to cancel the vent in the case of extreme weather. In the case of cancellation, your full ticket price will be refunded.
