March is a time for new beginnings, as the spring season starts to emerge and bring new opportunities for growth and adventure.
In Markham and Stouffville, there are plenty of exciting events happening that are perfect for families, children, and those who enjoy outdoor activities. Whether you’re looking for educational experiences or outdoor fun, there’s something for everyone this upcoming March.
The Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival (at Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area) and Willowgrove Farms are both hosting maple syrup demonstrations during March Break and weekends in March. These events offer a unique opportunity for visitors to learn about the process of making maple syrup and the history behind it. Participants will get to see firsthand how sap is collected from maple trees and transformed into the sweet syrup we know and love. In addition to the demonstrations, there will also be various activities and games for visitors of all ages. These activities include tours of the sugar bush, tastings of different grades of maple syrup, and even the chance to tap your own tree. The maple syrup demonstrations are a great way to spend a day with the family and learn about this important aspect of Canadian culture. They take place rain or shine, so be sure to come prepared for the weather.
