The annual Heritage Syrup Festival takes place each fall in Henderson, this year on November 10. The tradition of ribbon cane syrup making is demonstrated on the depot museum grounds with experienced syrup makers operating an antique mule powered syrup mill to produce old-fashioned cane syrup. While the syrup cooks, folk artists demonstrations take place including wood carving, blacksmithing, lace making, rope and basket making, quilting, broom making and other old-time survival skills. Live music, food and beverages, and more provide a full day of fun.
