Maple Syrup Festivals

By in Winter

Is there anything more Canadian than visiting a Maple Syrup festival and eating freshly-poured-on-snow maple syrup candy? We don’t think so, either! That’s why Active Parents has rounded up these local Maple Syrup festivals for you. Bon appetite!

 

Bronte Creek Provincial Park

Bronte Creek’s Maple Syrup festival specializes in the history of maple syrup presented on a heritage farm from 1900. Their attractions include a pancake house, fresh maple candy, fresh maple taffy, guided tours of Maple Lane, gift shoppe, wagon rides, farm animals, historical tours, family activities and more. Open every weekend starting March 3rd through April 1, and daily during March Break.
