Everything is better with maple syrup. This weekend at St. John's University you can get a full rundown on how delicious syrup is made from tree to bottle!

Join us for our most popular event of the year! Sap collecting, syrup cooking, sugar shack tours, demonstrations, and hot maple syrup sundaes await the whole family. Lily's Wings Food Truck on site!

This festival is entirely outdoors, rain, shine or otherwise. With the thaw we've been having it will be muddy and boots are highly encouraged. The festival runs from 11 am - 4 pm on Saturday March 30th. Walk-in registrations are welcome, but you can also register for it in advance.


Here is the rundown on costs:

Outdoor U Members

Parking that day will be near the St. John's Preparatory School and the science buildings at St. John's University. Van shuttles will be taking people from parking to the festival where you will find the registration and check-in!
