Your Sweet Tooth Will Swoon Over This Two-Day Maple Festival In Massachusetts
Get your pancakes ready – maple season has hit Massachusetts and this two-day festival is the perfect way to celebration. Here’s why you should take advantage of Maple Weekend 2019 to indulge your sweet tooth.
Maple Weekend a celebration of all things sweet, sticky, and maple-flavored. This annual event brings together Massachusetts’ maple producers and lovers to put the sweetest spin on the weekend of March 16 and 17.
This festival isn’t held in just one location. It’s more of a collaboration between sugar shacks, restaurants, towns, and shops to bring maple fun to people across the state. Start off by learning about the maple sugaring process and buying fresh-from-the-farm syrup at sugarhouses like William Farm Sugarhouse (491 Greenfield Rd., Greenfield), North Hadley Sugar Shack (181 River Dr., Hadley), or Davenport Maple Farm (111 Tower Rd., Shelburne).
Head to the Canal District in Worcester on Maple Weekend for a stroll through maple heaven. BirthTree will be selling their signature maple lattes made with local syrup, and Glazy Susan will be offering a pop-up shop at Stillman’s Meats where you can grab a sumptuous maple bacon doughnut. In the evening, head to the Ballot Box to try out their maple cocktail list.
If you feel like doing a bit of shopping, you can buy discounted maple products like maple cream, maple candy, and maple ice cream at Woodville Maples (217 Wood St., Hopkinton) or Big Head Fred’s (417 Flat Hill Rd., Lunenberg). And of course, there’s nothing bette than sitting down to a huge maple brunch complete with pancakes and all the fixings. Check out maple-themed restaurants Gould’s Sugarhouse (570 Mohawk Trail, Shelburne) and The Red Bucket Sugar Shack (584 Kinne Brook Rd., Worthington).
