There’s nothing more Canadian than eating maple taffy straight from the snow, and it’s an experience being made available at the Calgary Maple Festival des Sucres.
Along with the tasty treats, the festival will also provide a place for Calgarians to discover Alberta’s Francophone, Metis, and First Nation’s heritage.
