There is nothing quite as sweet as springtime and the McLean’s Maplefest proves this every year at their annual Maplefest! At Maplefest, there are a tons of fun activities for the entire family. Whether it’s going for a wagon ride, eating pancakes with fresh maple syrup or seeing how the sweet stuff is made, there is something to do for everyone! Kids and kids at heart love tapping their toes and swinging their hips to live music, trying their hand at tapping a maple tree and testing their toffee on snow twirling skills to get a taste of the sweet stuff! Farm animals and fresh straw offer playtime for some, while others prefer to take a stroll through the sugar bush with a pair of snowshoes. Whatever it is you’re looking for this spring, McLean’s Maplefest is a great way for everyone to shake off a long winter and enjoy the celebration of springs arrival!

Update Sunday March 31st:

We’re open rain, snow or shine! The farm has been turned into a winter wonderland and we’ve got a fresh blanket of snow in the sugarbush (and everywhere else on the farm!). We’ll be operating as per usual with all of our regular activities for our final day of Maplefest!

We’ll have log sawing, tree tapping, rope making, maple mini putt, farm animals to see, toffee on snow, visiting the sugarbush and sugar shack, live music, play areas, lots of baked goods and of course pancakes and syrup available on top of everything else!
