Maine Maple Sunday

Enjoy the first sweet taste of spring in Maine!

Maine Maple Sunday is always the fourth Sunday in March.

Join Maine’s maple producers each spring as they celebrate Maine Maple Sunday. It’s the day when sugarmakers around the State open the doors of their sugarhouses for the public to join them in their rites of spring – making maple syrup.
Most sugarhouses offer free tasting and live demonstrations of how syrup is produced, from tap to table. Many offer a variety of other trheats and activities, including syrup on pancakes or ice cream, sugarbush tours, sleigh or wagon rides, live music and lots more.

The Maine Maple Sunday event, always the fourth Sunday in March, is often expanded to additional days, or held earlier or later at some sugarhouses. Be sure to read the description after each listing and call ahead. Many sugarhouses are open all season and will arrange special tours and demonstrations for groups on other days as well. Call them to make arrangements. Listings are grouped by county where they are located.
