We can all agree that this winter feels like its never ending.

And the best way to get over a harsh Ontario winter? The arrival of spring and its gift of sweet, sweet maple syrup, of course.

This March, the Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival returns, giving the province the perfect opportunity to say farewell to winter.

From March 10 to April 8, the festival will take place at four conservation areas all within an hours drive from Toronto, including Bruce’s Mill, Kortright Centre, Island Lake and Terra Cotta.

Stacks of pancakes, sugarbush demonstrations, wagon rides, hikes, and plenty of outdoor fun are all part of the sweet annual tradition that is the Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival.

The festival runs for a month and offers special events and activities for the little ones on weekends and over March break.

But don’t worry, the festival doesn’t just cater to the kiddies. Kortright will host a number of evening events, including a guided twilight tour of Kortright’s maple sugar bush. Here visitors can visit the sugar shack, sample real maple syrup and cozy up by the campfire.

Each park has different hours of operation, so make sure to check the main festival page for full hours.
