Maple Syrup Festival

Come join us at this upcoming event

Maple Syrup Festival

Wear your boots to Essex County’s premier Maple Syrup Festival at the John R. Park Homestead. Make maple taffy in the snow, and see syrup being made the pioneer way. Enjoy demonstrations, hands-on activities and more

Get out your plaid jackets and fuzzy touques for the first day of the festival! This day will feature all of the old-fashioned favourites, plus a maple themed lunch available for purchase.

Day 1 will also feature

  • The Beard and Moustache Competition
  • Maple Market
  • Mini-Maple Makers’ activities for kids, plus much more!


$6/adult, $4/child (ages 3-16), $20 family maximum

Back by popular demand, we will once again be holding this festival over two days. 

Offsite parking is available at Cecelia Acres (885 County Rd 23), and the Oxley Beach Golf Course (597 Essex County Rd 50). There will be a shuttle running on a continuous loop from both lots to the John R. Park Homestead during the day.
