How ready is your sweet tooth for this year’s Bronte Creek Maple Syrup Festival? Ready or not, celebration is already ongoing and will continue every weekend until the end of March! Below are more details on why you shouldn’t miss the best maple syrup festival in Ontario!
If you weren’t able to go to the Bronte Creek Maple Syrup Festival the past weekend, March 3-4, fret not! March 10-18, March 24-25, and March 30 to April 1, 2018 are also festival dates. Be sure to show up between 9:30am-3:00pm at the Bronte Creek Provincial Park to get a taste of fresh Ontario maple syrup on the mentioned dates!
Festival Attractions Await You
Aside from tasting some maple syrup, there will be a guided tour of Maple Lane. Therein you’ll see interpreters costumed for the 1890’s who are going to demonstrate the various historical ways of collecting maple syrup and the process it goes through to be the maple syrup we know. The tour will end in the middle of Spruce Lane Farm where you can visit the farm animals after enjoying a stick of delicious maple taffy or trying your hand in making fresh maple sugar.
The family activity centre is the place to be to let kids play exciting games and really have fun. Older kids might enjoy Spruce Lane Farmhouse where they can observe life as it was from 1899. Adults will surely enjoy browsing for souvenirs and maple products at the Maple Gift Shop.
Lastly, everyone can enjoy a meal of fresh pancakes and sausages (with Ontario maple syrup, of course!) at the Pancake House before heading home. Another good news is that the Pancake House’s famous hotdogs will be sold in pack of 10s this year, so you can take more happy memories from the festival to your home!
Still not convinced? Here are more reasons why you should visit the 2018 Bronte Creek Maple Syrup Festival!
Your Chance to Try Going Victorian
Why not try not touching your phone for a day and immerse yourself in the 1890s with the festival staff? Old-fashioned fun making taffy and syrup can be very therapeutic!
The Perfect Winter Experience
Bronte Creek Maple Syrup festival attendees rose from just 5,000 to an estimated 45,000 over the years. This is primarily because after months of being cooped up indoors for winter, the milder weather in March is perfect for enjoying the cold weather before spring!
A Fun Learning Experience
There is more than just history that is being taught at the festival, conservation is a big thing too. Sugaring contributes to keeping a healthy ecosystem by helping maintain trees that play a big role in the environment.
When you’re done having fun and seeing the attractions, be sure to get free samples of Bush’s Beans before heading home. Yes, they’re back for this year’s festival in very limited quantities!
