The 41st Maine Maple Sunday Weekend is set for Saturday to Sunday, March 23 and 24.

“As always, our members are thrilled to host Maine Maple Sunday — maple producers are preparing creative ways to share their love of all things maple,” said Lyle Merrifield, president of the Maine Maple Producers Association, in an association news release. “Over 100 sugar houses will be open in 15 counties, some on Sunday only, but many for the whole weekend so everyone can enjoy some sweetness.”

Activities vary from sugarhouse to sugarhouse. Many offer demonstrations of tree tapping, boiling, filtering, bottling and sugarbush tours, and some are offering horse-drawn wagon rides, farm animals to pet, full pancake breakfasts, live music and family-friendly activities. There will be many maple products to sample or purchase.
