Wakarusa Maple Syrup Festival

Wakarusa Maple Syrup Festival 1


April 28-30, 2023

The running of the maple syrup is one of the first signs of spring, so a festival celebrating this tradition is a most fitting way to kick off the festival season.

Maple Syrup, on fluffy pancakes, is the star of the festival; but there is so much more, including a parade, entertainment, fair foods and family activities.
