Maple Syrup Festival at Leane and Michael’s Sugarbush Farm
Every year during the last weekend of February and the first weekend in March Leane and Michael’s Sugarbush farm (Salem, IN) hosts their Maple Syrup Festival. Admission and parking is free, and we found the event to be extremely family friendly for all ages.
We started with a pancake/waffle breakfast (kids under 5 eat free) and then headed outside to the activities. For kids there is a scavenger hunt which yields maple syrup cotton candy as a prize, bean bags toss, branding wood, coloring, candle making, a maze, Jacob’s ladder, a swing and much more. For older children and adults you can take a tractor ride or take a hike to see where the maple syrup is tapped. There are some vendors, but nothing pushy and items are very unique. Most activities are free or cost a nominal fee. Before you leave stop by the store and load up on fantastic maple syrup that comes in four grades, maple syrup cookies and candy. Dress warmly, wear shoes for mud and have fun!
