Adirondack Maple Weekends
Maple Weekend is a chance for local maple producers throughout New York state to showcase their products, and for local businesses and restaurants to highlight their maple-inspired creativity. On the weekends of March 23 - 24 and 30 - 31, people can visit local maple producers for tours, demonstrations, and tastings, then visit local businesses like restaurants and retailers and sample a bountiful array of maple treats, menus, retail promotions and more.
Northern Adirondack towns celebrating maple will include Lake Placid, Keene, Wilmington, Saranac Lake, Paul Smiths, Malone, and Tupper Lake. Maple Weekend is done in conjunction with New York State Maple Producers' and Northeastern NY Maple Producers' Maple Weekends.
Some of the weekend activities will include:
- Sugar house tours and demos
- Family programs, 5k run, and activities at Paul Smiths VIC
- Sap to syrup workshops
- Restaurant promotions and maple menus all weekend
