The 51st annual Elmvale Maple Syrup Festival has come to a close. The weather was phenomenal, and attendance was spectacular with record crowds. Many thanks to all our dedicated volunteers, vendors, local businesses, residents , visitors and Springwater Township for their continued partnership along with our local maple syrup producers. Without you we could not savour the sweet taste of success.

See you next year, our 52nd Annual on Saturday April 29th, 2017.
