Always the first Sunday in March!
The celebration of Maple Syrup begins on Tappin' Sunday which usually occurs on the 1st Sunday in March. This year it is March 5th 2023!
This includes the tapping of all the maple trees on Chardon Square to have syrup for the festival. To tap a tree, you must drill a hole in the tree to start. Then you must tap the spile and hang the bucket from the tree.
The sap collected from Tappin' Sunday is then taken to the Chardon Square Sugar house where it is turned into Maple syrup stirs for customers to enjoy.
