‘Tis the season for the smooth sweetness of a Canadian Classic delicacy affectionately known as liquid gold. Yes, it’s that time of year when maple syrup is flowing true and it takes centre stage on our palette, in our hearts, and in our tummies. After two long years of being on the sidelines, the Muskoka Maple Festival is back to provide plenty of opportunities for maple syrup aficionados to taste a variety of flavours, as well as inspired dishes and beverages. Taking place on Saturday, April 30 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. throughout Main Street in Downtown Huntsville, the family-friendly festival features plenty of tasting options, live entertainment, maple syrup producers and much more. New this year for those staying overnight at local accommodations is the opportunity to enjoy Sunday Sugar Bush Tours and more live entertainment on Sunday May 1 at Sugarbush Hill Maple Farm in Huntsville. Here’s what you can expect!
