Date:  Saturday, March 19th 2016 - Sunday, March 20th 2016

Every spring, the New York State Maple Producers Association invites families from across the Empire State and
neighboring areas into their "sugar houses" to learn all about the production of maple syrup and other related products.  
Our goal during Maple Weekend is to provide an educational demonstration with a maple producer where visitors can
experience many aspects of pure maple production. Maple producers will demonstrate how to make syrup and other pure
maple products, whether it’s simply boiling the sap over an open fire or running it through highly scientific equipment or
heating and stirring it into delicious sugars and creams, the results always taste great

From the first Maple Sunday in the mid 1990s to today’s state-wide Maple Weekends, the goal remains the same, to give
the public a first-hand opportunity to see how maple products are produced, from tree to table, along with the chance to
taste and purchase maple products.
