Come out and enjoy a Canadian spring in our sugarbush. At Purple Woods we collect sap from 800 Maple Trees and boil it on site to make delicious Maple Syrup.
Every day of the Festival we have historical and current fireside maple syrup production demonstrations, horse drawn wagon rides, games, crafts, and of course, pancakes with maple syrup! Step back in time and explore our pioneer log cabin, complete with artifacts from days gone by.

During our evening Sugar Bush Lantern Walk on April 7, visitors will enjoy taking a lantern into the forest to learn about the history of maple syrup from our interpretive staff. You will have a chance to try some sugar bush tasks and taste some of that amazing Purple Woods Maple Syrup! A candlelit dessert and cider will be served in our rustic, heated Heritage Hall at the before of the walk.
