MAPLE SYRUP… Mmmmm. It’s maple syrup season again, and if you love all things pioneer, and especially watching maple syrup being made, then there are three upcoming local Grey Bruce maple syrup festivals we’d like to recommend to you.

On the weekend of March 25th and 26th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at Saugeen Bluffs Conservation Area near Paisley is the Saugeen Bluffs Maple Syrup Festival.

Coming up in April is the Purple Valley Community Maple Syrup Festival. Enjoy the sweet taste of fresh, warm, maple syrup on a pancake for breakfast, or take some fresh maple syrup home for later. Follow breakfast with a horse drawn buggy ride, a tour of the sugar shack, go for a hike in the bush, or bake bannock over an open fire. Dates are to be announced. Purple Valley Community Centre is located at 565 Purple Valley Rd, Wiarton, ON N0H 2T0.
