Come celebrate the annual Maple Syrup Festival at Cunningham Falls State Park!
Maple Syrup Festival - 2023
March 11, 12, 18 and 19
The festival takes place on the weekends of March 11-12 and March 18-19. Guests can watch staff demonstrate the traditional way of boiling sap into syrup, listen to live bluegrass music, and take a hayride through the Maple Grove.
Try your hand in the great pancake race – trying to flip a pancake on the run ahead of other contestants – or enjoy a hot pancake breakfast with sausage and maple syrup.
Events take place each day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A sign language interpreter will be stationed at the Sugar Shack on both Sundays. Syrup-making demonstrations and hayrides take place every hour on the hour. $5 donation per person is requested at the entrance. Breakfast, maple syrup products, and event souvenirs are available during the festival hours at extra cost.
Proceeds from the Maple Syrup Festival benefit the nonprofit Friends of Cunningham Falls and Gambrill State Parks. The park opens at 9 a.m. and closes at sunset. Pets are permitted on a leash, outside only. This event is ADA accessible.
Visitors may call 301-271-7574 for more information.
