A Brief Overview of NYS Maple Weekend

Each spring, members of the New York State Maple Producers Association invite the public to visit their sugarhouses and farms and learn about the unique tradition of maple production.

This family-friendly event is named the NYS Maple Weekend, and a majority of events, activities, and tastings are free minus the pancake breakfasts and any maple treats you decide to purchase.

The official time is 10:00am - 4:00pm for each day, although some participants have adjusted hours.

Pro Tip for Traveling to Maple Farms

Some of the activities take place outdoors on working farms, so keep this in mind in terms of your clothing and footwear.

March is still chilly in New York State, and there's likely to be a combination of mud and snow on the ground. Dress appropriately before your visit.

Can't make it out for NYS Maple Weekend? Some local maple farms are open year round, although you'll likely want to call ahead before visiting.

However, in the Northeast, March means maple, so we recommend planning a trip to explore our region's amazing maple farms and sugarhouses in the springtime!
