Maple Syrup Festivals/Events usually begin in March/April in Ontario.* There are quite a few Maple Syrup events held throughout the Province – most are outside of the city, so a car is a must!
Maple Weekend: April 1-2, 2023
What a great way to spend a day with the family!
- Learn how maple syrup is made
- See how the sap is drained into metal buckets (traditional way) or through hose-like pipes
- Watch how maple syrup was boiled in metal tubs (traditional way)
- Wagon rides and more!
Admission may apply, but worth the experience!
Don’t forget to pick up a couple of bottles of fresh syrup – you’ll not want to go back to store brand again!

Tap into Maple: March 3-April 2
Take the family out for the day and experience the Tap into Maple self-driving route, just north of Toronto in Ontario’s Lake Country (Orillia-Muskoka area).

Maple Syrup Season
For maple syrup producers who may not be included in the events listed above, visit https://www.destinationontario.com/en-ca/articles/celebrate-maple-syrup-season-ontario and select the area that best suits your plans.
* Remember: all these events are dependent on how the winter was and how fast the sap is flowing. As a result, this affects what is available at participating farms.
