Explore Maine Maple Sunday

There is no better place to celebrate all things Maple than Maine's Kennebec Valley.

Celebrating Somerset County’s status as the top maple-producing county in the United States, the Skowhegan Maple Festival celebrates all things maple with fun activities and events for all ages, a talent show, pancake breakfast, marshmallow roasting, a scavenger hunt, a Rotary-sponsored beer, wine, and food tasting, and more! This weekend long event is not to be missed.

In addition, many Maine Maple Producers Association members in Kennebec and Somerset County offer events and activities during Maine Maple weekend (see the list below). Learn more info about Maine Maple Sunday on the Maine Maple Producers website.

Other farms, sugar shacks, and organizations throughout the region take part in Maine Maple Sunday, so follow us on Facebook to keep up with all the sweet stuff happening this March and throughout the year.
