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!

Beyond the sugar shack tours, pancakes and taffy tasting, there is so much more to the weekend long festival including birds of prey demonstrations, live music from local artists, kids games & activities, woodcarving demos; and of course chickadee feeding!


  • Adults: $10.00
  • Children aged 4-17: $5.00
  • 1 Pancake Breakfast: $5.00
  • Members are FREE with membership card.

Please note that Sweetwater Harvest Festival is a cash only event.
