–Tap into one of the sweetest events of the year, New York State’s Maple Weekend
, which will be celebrating its 20th year in 2015. The event takes place March 21-22 and March 28-29 from 10am-4pm each day. During both weekends, producers from across the state will welcome families to their farms to experience firsthand how real, mouthwatering maple syrup and other related maple products are made. Visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy fun, family-friendly activities, taste New York’s freshest syrup and purchase maple products directly from the source.
Each year, New York ranks as one of the top maple producing states in the U.S. As spring temperatures begin to rise in late February and early March, maple trees and sugar bushes come alive with activity. In Northern New York, when sap begins to drip through sugaring lines, it's a sure sign that maple sugaring season has begun.
Maple Weekend offers visitors and residents alike the opportunity to taste this “liquid gold” in all its forms. Plan your own Maple Weekend trip at mapleweekend.com and join the conversation on Facebook at facebook.com/mapleweekend.
