Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), in partnership with Credit Valley Conservation, regrettably announces the cancellation of its upcoming 2020 Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival to proactively protect visitors, and all who would be in attendance, from the potential risk of contracting COVID-19.

This is in line with the recent announcement from Ontario’s chief medical officer of health recommending the immediate suspension of all large events and public gathering of more than 250 people and the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring COVID-19 a global pandemic, as well as recommendations by the Public Health Agency of Canada.

The 2020 Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival cancellation effects the following locations and dates:

Kortright Centre for Conservation – from March 14 – April 12
Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area – from March 14 – April 12, including March Break (March 16 – 20) and Good Friday (April 10)
Terra Cotta Conservation Area – weekends (March 14 – April 5) and March Break (March 16 – 20)
Island Lake Conservation Area – March 20, 21 & 28

Full refunds will be processed.
