This festival 2 hours from Toronto is your last chance to celebrate maple sugar season

Apr 21 2017, 3:00 pm

Don’t be a sap! Maple sugar season is almost over and if you haven’t got your sugar-fix just yet, there’s still one last opportunity this season to stock up on syrup and fill your face with taffy.

Just a little more than two hours from Toronto, The Muskoka Maple Festival will take over Main Street in downtown Huntsville, Ontario next weekend on Saturday, April 29.

It’s a grand finale for the annual “liquid gold rush” and marks the closure of the maple trail for another year.

The festival, now in its second year, will see the 2017 season culminate in a massive street party where maple-infused food and drink are the main event.

To eat, look forward to all-day pancake breakfasts, a maple market flush with baked goods, treats, and other sweet dishes, and a beer garden.

Entertainment-wise, expect arts and craft vendors, live music, street performers, BATL Axe Throwing, Scottish Highland Dancing, a wildlife caller, a magician, a drum circle, and other family-friendly activities.

It might just be the perfect excuse to escape the city before the weather warms up enough for camping adventures, hikes, and day trips to the beach.
