The fall season is finally upon us and it's time to celebrate one of Maine's favorite fall flavors: Maple!

Get all in with this special Maine fall flavor with the second annual Maine Maple Fall Fest on October 9th and 10th from 9 AM to 4 PM where you can tour Maine's sugar houses and try all kinds of maple syrup treats like candies, cotton candy, ice cream, baked treats, and, of course, some straight-up Maine-produced maple syrup.

The festival is being put on by the Maine Maple Producers Association and is a family-friendly fall event that brings Mainers to their local maple producers and try the many ways you can enjoy maple syrup.
