MapleFest is a culture packed festival where you can immerse yourself in arts, music, food and activities for the entire family. The main goal of the MapleFest is to offer families an event where they can come together, share and discover the maple Canadian culture.

Saturday, March 30, during the day  people can come celebrate and be entertained with free outdoors art classes, expositions, dance, music and performances, and enjoy the many maple syrup treats that will be served. Then, at night-time, the public can attend the Jann Arden concert and dance the night away to the sounds of DJ Eric Lenger at the after party.

Sunday, the festivities continue with the traditional ‘maple sugar shack’ brunch and a special screening of the Quebec production movie Louis Cyr.
