Maple Weekend April 6 and 7 to showcase Ontario producers

WYEBRIDGE – Maple syrup season is well underway and producers are set to welcome visitors and showcase the 2024 crop of maple syrup during the 8th annual Maple Weekend, April 6 and 7.

Hosted by the Ontario Maple Syrup Producers’ Association (OMSPA), Maple Weekend is a fun, free, two-day, family-friendly event that celebrates Ontario’s maple heritage and encourages visitors to head out to visit the sugarbush and savour the flavours of spring.

“Spring is the most exciting time of the year for maple syrup producers, especially when we get an early run as we did this year,” said OMSPA president Randal Goodfellow.

“Maple syrup producers across the province are looking forward to opening up their sugarbush for visitors and inviting them to join in the celebration of the sweetest time of the year.”

Maple Weekend features two full days of activities and specials at participating sugarbushes across the province. Running from 10amto 4pm both days, at participating sugarbushes visitors can expect to sample maple syrup, get out on the trails in a working sugarbush, eat maple taffy, get an inside peek into how maple syrup is produced, and stock up on this year’s crop of maple syrup.

Officially launched in 2015, Maple Weekend is a past nominee for Destination Ontario’s Tourism Event of the Year, and draws roughly 20,000 visitors to rural sugarbushes across the province each year.

In 2024, there will be 75 producers taking part in Maple Weekend, including several from the Waterloo-Wellington district.

A list of participating Maple Weekend maple syrup producers is available on the Maple Weekend website, along with further details about specials and activities for visitors at the 75 locations across the province. Visit for more details.
