Vermontville Maple Syrup Festival
Annual community festival founded in 1940 to promote the sale of maple products made by local syrup producers.
Today the festival is a 3-day event with a talent show, rides, arts & crafts,flea market, parades, various contests, fireworks and downtown stage with entertainment. Vermontville is the “granddaddy” of them all! We are the home of the original Maple Syrup Festival in Michigan.
Our festival starts Friday evening, continues through Saturday and Sunday and is always held during the last full weekend in April. We have something for everyone — Mid-America rides, talent show, arts and crafts, flea market, two parades, petting zoo, princess pageant, various displays, games, free entertainment, a pancake derby, and arm wrestling. Our syrup producers are located throughout the village selling syrup, candies, crème and the ever popular maple syrup cotton candy.
We invite you to join us and enjoy pancakes with real maple syrup offered by the Maple Valley Band Boosters and the American Legion.
