Maple Weekends in STLC

Taste the Sweetness of the North Country

* March 18 / 19 and 25 / 26, 2023*

New York State is home to the largest resource of tappable maple trees within the United States, and over 2,000 maple sugarmakers. St. Lawrence County is home to several of these maple sugarmakers, many of them family owned for generations and a staple in our local communities. Each year during sugaring season, our local producers invite visitors to check out the process and sample the goods during the New York State annual Maple Weekends. The NYS Maple Weekends event series is organized and sponsored by the New York State Maple Producers’ Association.
