We've partnered with Camphill Communities Ontario to host our third annual outdoor Maple Festival! Making maple syrup at Camphill Communities has been a community tradition for 40 years. Scheduled for March 23 & 24, 2024 at Drysdale's Tree Farm, this Maple Festival will offer a chance for families and the community to experience the Ontario tradition of making maple syrup. 

Visitors will be able to see traditional sugaring demonstrations, tour a sugar bush, ride in a horse drawn wagon, and experience maple taffy making. There will even be a pancake breakfast to taste Camphill's delicious maple syrup. Shop in the Evergreen Store and browse our unique selection of seasonal gifts and d├ęcor. Please, join Camphill and the Drysdale's family in sharing this sweet annual tradition together.
