Sweetwater Harvest Festival

31st Annual Sweetwater Harvest Weekends

March 18/19 & March 25/26, 2023

Celebrate a uniquely Canadian tradition
in a distinctively Canadian landscape.


Escape to a time when maple syrup was made over an open fire, experience our history and explore nature at its best. The festival celebrates the history of maple syrup, and the role it plays in our cultural and natural heritage.

Sweetwater is not your average maple syrup festival - it's so much more!


So much to see & do!

Get back to the basics - and fall in love with a sweet Canadian tradition at Wye Marsh.
