( You’ll cross the Horseshoe Valley Rd.) At the road to Wasaga Beach (County Rd.#92/Queen St.) you have arrived in Elmvale.

Springwater Township will be enforcing no parking along the west side of Amelia Street, the south side of Stone Street, and the north side of William Street.

The streets will be clearly marked by the Township as tow-away zones and this will be strictly enforced on Festival day. Special event parking lots throughout the village will be well marked. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to approach one of our volunteers.

Parking guides will help you find a spot for the day.

Producers Association

Lalonde's Maple Sugar

Brrrrr…. baby it’s cold outside. This past winter has given us some very cold days and nights and we’re hoping it makes for an exceptional syrup crop this year, but we never can tell until it’s over. As most of you know, we need freezing temperatures at night and plus temperatures in the day time so the sap flows, and Mother Nature predicts it all. I would like to tell you about our new product this year, ” Maple Cotton Candy” made with our very own maple syrup. OMG you need to try it. It just melts in your mouth and has that great maple flavour. It will be available at our sugar bush camp as well as at our booth. Some of you may have tried it already if you were at some of the Winter Carnivals in our area this past winter.

Tim and I would like to give a big thank you to all the people who have helped in making this annual event such a success over the years. There are so many people that have volunteered their time each year and we would like to acknowledge that, without them we wouldn’t be celebrating 55 years of tradition.
