There is nothing sweeter than the fresh taste of maple syrup and where better to sample some than at Westfield Heritage Village’s annual Maple Syrup Festival?
Come and see both traditional and modern methods for making maple syrup and then try some delicious pancakes sold by the St. George Lion’s Club at the Ironwood Hall.
The Maple Syrup Festival at Westfield is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and to learn about maple syrup and about Ontario’s history. Bring a friend or the whole family! Tours and demonstrations run throughout the day and there are free horse drawn wagon rides available.
Discover the labour intensive traditional techniques used in early Ontario to produce maple syrup and then take a short picturesque walk into the sugar bush to a modern sugar shack where you can taste some of Westfield’s very own maple syrup produced in a modern evaporator. Explore more than 30 historic buildings which are open and staffed by the village’s volunteer interpreters. Warm up by a roaring fire or by a cozy wood stove and learn about both Ontario’s past and our local history.
Visit the Gift Shop for a wide selection of maple products, including syrup, fudge, teas and candies. At the General Store you can purchase baked goods and other sweet treats.
