Place: Participating Maple Producers Across the State
In Maine, the fourth Sunday of every March is Maple Sunday. This enduring Maine tradition is a sweet way to welcome Spring back to the northeast. Maine is the third largest syrup producer in the country, and Somerset County is the largest maple syrup producing county in the US. On March 24th, Sugarhouses all across the state will open their doors to visitors eager for a behind-the-scenes look at all things maple syrup.
What Can You Expect from Maple Sunday?
Maple Sunday offers a variety of activities that are equal parts educational and delicious. It provides an opportunity for your family to play outside, with interactive tours of sap lines and farmyards to explore. It is also a fun way to support your local maple syrup producer. Above all else though, it is an excuse to eat as much pure maple syrup as you want!
Some of the things you can expect from Maple Sunday are:
- Syrup Samples
- Sugarbush Tours
- Pancake Breakfasts
- Farm Animals
- Sap Boiling Demonstrations
Each Sugarhouse offers their own special twist on the syrupy holiday, so make sure to visit them online before you head out.
Finding a Sugarhouse
To make finding the right sugarhouse easy, the Maine Maple Producers Association has put together a nifty map of all participating sugarhouses. This map includes details on the syrup producers, as well as local restaurants and lodging, in case you want to make it a weekend trip.
