Maple Sugar Festival

maple-syrupSpring has sprung and that means maple sugar season! Canadians have long honoured the tradition of visiting the sugar shack during the springtime, and the Richelieu Park’s Sugar Shack is holding a Maple Sugar Festival. Located in Ottawa, Ontario, the Richelieu Sugar Shack taps 1000 trees every year in order to produce approximately 400 litres of maple syrup! While there, you can learn about the entire maple syrup process from their team of volunteers.

From March 31st to April 6th 2014, you can get involved in this time honoured tradition which promises to be fun for the entire family. Some key highlights include:

  • Pancake breakfast
  • Sleigh rides
  • Brunch
  • Petting zoo
  • Snow taffy
  • And much more….

 

Take advantage of the small shop which offers souvenirs and maple products. For more information and for a calendar of events, please visit the official website.
