Get the Details

Celebrate the start of of the 2019 spring season at Thurman Maple Days, where nature is a way of life, and sugaring is second nature.

For three weekends in a row, the four largest maple syrup producers in the Adirondack region and three nearby farms open their doors to the public for Thurman Maple Days. Celebrate spring with free tours, tastings, and demonstrations, with a vast array of food and souvenirs available to take home.

During this three weekend celebration, you'll be able to taste the finest maple syrup, watch maple tree sawmill operations, and even taste sheep cheese and hang out with llamas. As a self-guided tour, you'll be in the driver's seat and have the ability to visit all farms or spend your time at the ones you enjoy most. Follow the arrow signs at nearly every corner in town.

Begin the day at Valley Road Maple Farm for a tasty pancake breakfast starting at 9am before the Thurman Maple Days festivities begin at 10am.
