Maple Syrup Festival
2017 Festival Dates:
March 4-5, 11-19 and 25-26
Fresh Ontario maple syrup begins flowing at Bronte Creek Provincial Park on the first Saturday in March when the park's annual Maple Syrup Festival gets under way. The maple syrup festivities are open to the public from 9:30am to 3:00pm every weekend in March and March Break.
Enjoy a guided tour of Maple Lane, where interpreters costumed for the 1890's demonstrate different historical ways of collecting and making maple syrup. The tour ends in the middle of Spruce Lane Farm where you can learn how to make fresh maple sugar or enjoy a stick of delicious maple taffy before visiting the various farm animals in the yard. New this year is our family activity centre where the kids can have fun and do lots of exciting games. Make sure you don't miss Spruce Lane Farmhouse, a living history museum that recreates life from 1899. Be sure to browse through the maple products and souvenirs available in the Maple Gift Shoppe and purchase a bottle of syrup to take home. And what's a Maple Syrup Festival without a pancake meal? Hop on a wagon that will take you to the Pancake House where you can enjoy fresh, hot pancakes and sausages with pure maple syrup.
