Members of the Maine Maple Producers Association and licensed sugarhouses across Maine invite the public for a behind-the-scenes look at making Maine’s official sweetener. The 36th annual Maine Maple Sunday will occur Sunday, March 24.
“Maine maple producers are waiting to welcome the public to their sugarhouses to see demonstrations on how syrup is made and taste samples of syrup and foods made with syrup. Many farms also offer games, activities, treats, sugarbush tours, music, and so much more,” said Kathy Hopkins.
The annual Maine Maple Sunday is held every fourth Sunday in March. Visitors are invited to support Maine’s maple businesses and shop, meet, and learn about maple syrup and a variety of maple products that feature real Maine maple syrup as an ingredient.
Many sugarhouses are open Saturday and Sunday, March 23 and 24 and throughout the season. View a map of participating sugarhouses at mainemapleproducers.com/maine-maple-sunday.
