PURPLE WOODS

MAPLE SYRUP FESTIVAL

Sorry! Festival is cancelled.

See you in 2021!

Come out and experience a Canadian spring in our sugarbush! Sap collected from over 800

sugar maple trees is boiled on site into delicious maple syrup.

On your self-guided tour, you can visit our modern evaporator, and enjoy games and activities. Don't forget to stop by our Heritage Store to purchase some maple treats to take home!
