Due to the pandemic, this year’s Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival will feature a smaller schedule of events and run from Saturday, April 24 until Sunday, April 25. Events will include drive thru pancake and sausage meals, an emergency vehicle parade, 5k Run, a classic car show, horse pull, tractor pull, and a parade on Sunday.
A new event being added to the festival this year is the Artisan Row’s Maker’s Market. The market will feature unique works, wares and wonders while helping to raise money for the Shepherd Splash Park Project. The Artisan Row’s Maker’s Market will start on Friday and then run until Sunday.
The long-running tradition is completely dependent on volunteers who help out everywhere, from tapping the trees, to making the pancakes and coordinating the festival’s events.
Event information and other updates can be found on the festival’s website at http://www.shepherdmaplesyrupfest.org.
Given the current global pandemic, Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival is maintaining the health and safety of all guests and volunteers by strictly following CDC guidelines. We will encourage the use of face coverings and encourage social distancing. We will be implementing hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the event, and will encourage our guests and volunteers to monitor their health prior to entering the event space. Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival is continuing to update protocols to adhere to the current recommendations given by the CDC to ensure the health and well-being for all attendees.
