Maplefest will not be open for the 2023 season.


There is nothing quite as sweet as springtime, and the McLean family 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 maple goodness! 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 celebrate spring’s arrival!

Maplefest is at our McLean Berry Farm location – 2191 16th Line, Lakefield On, K0L 2H0.
