Festival helps welcome in spring

February 26, 2018 by  

The Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival is taking place beginning early next month and running until April at the Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area.

The festival highlights the gathering of maple sap and its major product, maple syrup. Guests will have the opportunity to watch the gathering of the sap and learn about the process of creating the syrup; they may even have the chance to pour some syrup on the snow for a sweet treat.

There will be plenty of family-friendly activities taking place during the festival. Horse-drawn wagon rides, wood carving demonstrations and an exotic animal show will be part of the proceedings, with balloon artist also on hand to create some amazing figures.

A popular part of the festival is always the pancakes and maple syrup that are available for purchase all day long. School groups and organizations can make special arrangements to visit.

This event will no doubt attract lots of visitors from all over the area, including from nearby Newmarket. Local print companies are often asked to provide printed advertising for events such as this.

The Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival will be held at Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area from March 10 to April 8. Admission is $8.85 for adults and $5.75 for children between the ages of 5 and 14. Call 416-667-6295 for more information or to learn about group rates.
