What better way to spend a day with family and friends at that at the 24th Annual Maple Weekend™ on March 23-24 and March 30-31, 2019 from 10am-4pm each day presented by the New York State Maple Producers Association.  About 110 maple producers across New York will be hosting open houses for the public to see how maple syrup and other related products are made. This family-oriented event is sure to delight visitors of all ages.  Admission is FREE!  Maple weekends take place regardless of the weather, so please dress accordingly for your visit.  The maple producers that will open their doors in the Enchanted Mountains are:
