Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5
The Spring Tonic Maple Syrup Festival kicks off our fundraising year at the Tiffin Centre. Here you’ll see historic re-enactments of Canada’s early history, tap maple trees and watch the sap transformed into syrup. Sample this natural sweetness on pancakes with sausage, as well as shop for maple candy, syrup and souvenirs. Kids’ can have their faces painted, make some crafts, build a birdhouse, enjoy a horse drawn wagon ride and maybe get a hug from a boa constrictor.
Visitors will take a trip back in time to explore how Indigenous people and Pioneers made maple syrup. After that, they will return to current times and see how maple syrup is made today! End your tour with pancake and sausage breakfast with fresh maple syrup. Prices for most activities are included in admission fees. Tiffin’s own maple syrup will be available for sale on site. All proceeds go towards the our community and the maintenance of NVCA’s conservation areas.
