Join us for Spring sweetness and fun!

The Maple Festival is a yearly tradition that celebrates our favorite Springtime forest product: maple syrup!


This year we will have maple confections provided by Tony's Orangeside Donut Truck! Unlike past years, there will not be a pancake breakfast.


Join us to learn about maple syrup production, visit our sugar shack, warm up by a campfire, and test your taste buds with a maple syrup taste test!


All ages welcome. Suggested donation: $5 per person; $10 per family.
