The annual Island Lake Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival will again fill the conservation area with the sweet smell of syrup boiling in open kettles and all the fun that goes along with it this weekend and next.

The festival will take place this Friday, March 16, Saturday, March 17, and on Saturday, March 24, at the conservation area.

Of course there will be pancakes and maple syrup on the menu, but there are also lots of other activities on tap.

Events will take place between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

A Kids Zone with the Dufferin County Museum and Archives, face painting with Makin Faces, and a maple scavenger hunt will keep the kids busy.

For those that like a little outdoor challenge, you can step up to the archery range with Far Shot Orangeville, or try your hand and axe throwing.

There will also be wagon rides around the conservation area, and live entertainment.

This year the event will be followed by a special Maple Syrup by Lamplight night on Saturday, April 7.

This is a night adventure beginning at 8:00 p.m., and will feature warm beverages to start, maple-themed snacks, and a campfire.  It is an age 19 and over event as alcoholic beverages will be served. Advanced tickets are required.
