Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Warkworth Maple Festival (Warkworth)

Family Tested
High energy

The best!

This is the place for the real taffy off the snow experience! The country road we had driven on for the last half an hour was charming and put us all in good spirits. The warm and friendly ambience reigning over the site was contagious. It seemed the whole Warkworth community was present. Most of the festival's activities revolve around a small square, worthy of a postcard, where a happy crowd is gathered. When we visited, the kids couldn't believe they were allowed to cut a slice off a log with a double-handed saw. They organize original competitions. We saw contestants being timed while they ran in the snow between the maple trees, wearing snowshoes and holding a bucket of maple sap. The excitement rises each time a new pail of delicious taffy is ready. As we sat to eat some pancakes, we watched spontaneous dancers move to the sound of the live fiddler's jig. Note that you can also visit the flat every weekend after the festival for taffy, sleigh ride and breakfast (weather permitting, just check their website to check).
