The Perth Festival of the Maples


The 48th Annual Edition of the Festival of the Maples will take place this Saturday April 27th 2024 in Perth, Ontario

The downtown core of Perth along Gore Street, Foster Street and the Tay Basin will be buzzing with activity. The sweet spoils of the ‘Sugar Season’ will be yours to discover!

Maple syrup producers’, artisans, vendors, local businesses, and food services will be set-up on Gore and Foster Streets from 9:00am until 4:00pm.

Check out the Safety Square exhibits and Kids’ Firefighter Obstacle Course in the Tay Basin. Children of all ages will enjoy the Maplefest Play Park featuring amusements by Ry-J’s with a rock climbing wall, bungee run, laser tag, bouncy castles and toddler activities.

There’s a great lineup of live entertainment on the main stage at Gore and Herriott Streets, as well as in the Tay Basin and on the festival streets. Check out our ‘Entertainment’ section for details.

And don’t miss our annual ‘Wood Cookie Challenge’ ‘Sap-Tapping’ & ‘Cross-Cut Saw Competition’. Two-person teams let the ‘chips fly’ as they work to hang the fastest maple syrup bucket and strut their stuff on an old-fashioned, 2-handled cross-cut saw! Form your own team and join the fun!
