Kingston – There are only two weekends left to enjoy the festivities at Maple Madness – March 23 and 24 and March 30 and 31. Take a tractor-drawn wagon back to the sugar bush at Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area to see how maple syrup was made by the early settlers of the region and how it’s made today. Enjoy delicious pancakes with maple syrup and even purchase some maple syrup or maple candy to take home.
Check out some of the special activities including all-new puppet shows for 2019, tree tapping demonstrations, self-guided Sugar Bush Tours, First Nations Display, maple taffy demo and ‘Old Tyme Sugar Bush Chores.’ With so much to do, you will want to visit the sugar bush more than once. A new activity this year is Face Painting, which will take place each Sunday throughout Maple Madness.
The sugar bush is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Check our Maple Madness page for the schedule of special events at www.crca.ca/events/maple-madness.

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.
