The festival offers maple syrup tastings as well as live bluegrass music, demonstrations, tours and activities for children including a petting zoo and play area. Visitors can also learn about the history of maple syrup, see the Guinness world record holder for greatest pancake flipper or compete in a cooking contest, which recognizes the best recipes using maple syrup.
Admission to the National Maple Syrup Festival is free, though guests who want to visit the farm and attend the outdoor program will be charged a shuttle fee of $8 for adults (16 years and older), $6 for children and seniors.
