Go with the Flow, of Maple Syrup!

February 18, 2009

  Bronte Creek Provincial Park is hosting their annual Maple Syrup Festival beginning February 28, 2009, and the following weekends in March and daily on March break from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (March 16- 20th). 

  “Being apart of co-ordinating the Maple Syrup Festival has been an amazing experience.  The park is a truly enchanting place to be and it is the perfect place to host a maple syrup festival.  The festival is traditional

 and incorporates maple sugar demonstrations, delicious

 pancakes, historical buildings, wagon rides, artifacts and on-going activities that are high quality for a low cost.” – Angela Vincent, Assistant Event Coordinator 

  Guests of the Maple Syrup Festival will be treated to free wagon rides that take you to a heated pancake house where you can enjoy fresh pancakes with pure maple syrup and your choice of crisp bacon or our famous sausages.  Guided tours of Maple Lane, watch demonstrations by 1890’s costumed interpreters of how to make maple sugar, explore artifacts from the 1890’s in the Maple Museum. 

  Adults and children have plenty to see and do.  Play the sap lid game, try to carry buckets of sap with the neck yoke, and complete the maple passport.   Explore the 100-year-old Spruce Lane Farmhouse, take pictures of wildlife and our beautiful scenery, and visit our candy shanty and Gift Shoppe. 

  For more information about the park programs and tours please call 905-827-6911 ext 228.  On-line information available at www.BronteCreek.org

  The Maple Syrup Festival takes place in the Day-use area of Bronte Creek Provincial Park.  It’s just north of the QEW on Burloak Drive, between Oakville and Burlington (Exit 109).   Once in the park please follow the signs placed for your convenience.
