Fall in Love with Maple is a province-wide event presented by the Ontario Maple Syrup Producers' Association to encourage residents and tourists to visit maple syrup operations across the province the last weekend in September and the first weekend in October.

This second annual Fall in Love with Maple North Grenville event is presented by On The Bend Sugar Shack in partnership with the Kemptville Campus. It offers something to delight people of all ages.


Located at the Agroforestry Centre on the Kemptville Campus (2627 Bedell Road) in the Peter Wensink Maple Forest, an 18-acre operating sugarbush, this event offers an opportunity to explore the workings of making maple syrup and learn about how maple syrup comes from tree to table. Enjoy beautiful, profesionally guided nature walks through the sugarbush trails in the autumn colours, live music and other activities. Activities run from 10am-4pm with the pancakes being served until 2:30 pm. Admission to the event is free!
