We posted an announcement in October 2021 due to the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic. After numerous inquiries we will do so again. Even though some provincial restrictions have started to ease now. The Festival is volunteer run and takes months almost a year in advance to plan. This decision was not taken lightly. We appreciate your understanding. We have turned our attention to a come back festival for April 29th, 2023.
It’s that time again, spring is officially here, yay! And that means Maple Syrup. Despite the Festival being cancelled again this year. Our local maple syrup producers are busy in their sugar shacks boiling golden deliciousness. Jerry and I visited Tim & Peggy LaLonde yesterday at their sugar bush located on Flos Rd 8 Elmvale. We encourage you and your household(s) to take the opportunity to stretch your legs and visit a local producer. Many are open now, following all Ontario Health Guidelines, and ready to serve you.
We, the committee, are taking this time, to redesign the festival & vendor layouts to serve you, the vendors and our community more effectively.
We look forward to welcoming everyone back spring, 2022 .
In the meantime, please support local business .
Please stay safe, stay well.
EMSF Director Of Vendors 2021/22
