Kingston – One of our most popular – and tastiest – annual events starts this Saturday, March 10, as the CRCA presents Maple Madness at the Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area. Take a tractor-drawn wagon back to the sugar bush to see how maple syrup was made by the early settlers of the region and also how it’s made today. Enjoy delicious pancakes with maple syrup and even purchase some maple syrup or maple sugar to take home.
Check out some of the special activities taking place during Maple Madness, including puppet shows, tree tapping demonstrations, guided Sugar Bush Tours, First Nations Display, the annual bake sale and ‘Old Tyme Sugar Bush Chores.’ With so much to do, you will want to visit the sugar bush more than once.
Maple Madness runs over the March Break, March 10 to 18, and the weekends of March 24 and 25 and March 31 and April 1, with the sugar bush open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Check our Maple Madness page for the schedule of special events at
Admission to Maple Madness is $15 per vehicle – fill your car or carpool!
The Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area is located on Division Street just two km north of Highway 401.
