Maple Weekend 2020 is March 21-22 & 28-29!
March means maple, especially for Ontario County in the Finger Lakes! During Maple Weekend maple farms across New York State invite visitors to their “sugar houses” to experience firsthand how pure, mouth-watering maple syrup and other related products are made. Visitors also have the opportunity to enjoy fun, family-friendly activities, taste New York's freshest syrup and purchase maple products.
