Annual National Maple Syrup Festival in Brown County

A sure sign that spring is on its way is the return of the National Maple Syrup Festival from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m on March 2, in Brown County. Explore the quaint town of Nashville for some shopping, great food and maple syrup.

There’ll be Native American, early French American and modern-day sugar-making demonstrations. The Sweet Victory Challenge, a national recipe contest sponsored by Burton’s Maplewood Farm, showcases the national winners and allows tastings of the recipes. Attendees can also peruse many handcrafted works by Indiana artisans and enjoy live music.

Nashville restaurants are hosting Maple on the Menu with many items featuring maple syrup. Local artisans also offer a variety of maple-inspired foods, like ice cream, chocolate and breads. Local retailers and artisans will also feature kitchen supplies handcrafted from maple wood and maple sugar soaps.

In addition, hikes led by park experts in Brown County State Park will help participants identify maple trees and extract the syrup, that can be tasted fresh from the tree.

Admission: $10 adults; children 12 and under free; doesn’t include park admission. For more information on the schedule, activity locations and tickets, visit
