Visit Oakville for some winter family fun at Bronte Creek’s Annual Maple Syrup Festival.
Fresh Ontario maple syrup begins flowing at Bronte Creek Provincial Park on the first Saturday in March, when the park’s annual Maple Syrup Festival gets under way. The maple syrup festivities are open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. every weekend in March and from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and daily through the March Break (March 10-18).
Enjoy a guided tour of Maple Lane, where interpreters costumed for the 1890s demonstrate different historical ways of collecting and making maple syrup. The tour ends in the middle of Spruce Lane Farm, where you can learn how to make fresh maple sugar or enjoy a stick of delicious maple taffy before visiting the various farm animals in the yard. Make sure to visit Spruce Lane Farmhouse, a living history museum that recreates life from 1899. Be sure to browse through the maple products and souvenirs available in the Maple Gift Shoppe and purchase a bottle of syrup to take home. And what’s a Maple Syrup Festival without a pancake meal? Hop on a wagon to the Pancake House, where you can enjoy fresh, hot pancakes and sausages with pure maple syrup.
