Geauga County Maple Festival

Join in the fun as Geauga County celebrates the coming of spring and the year’s maple syrup crop.  For visitors looking for fun there are all the traditional things a festival offers: rides, games, food & great entertainment.  Bath tub races, a golf outing, lumberjack competition, kid’s tractor pull, arts and crafts, auction, beard and mustache contest, tug of war competition and so much more!   

What makes this festival unique is all of the maple-related activities that take place over the weekend like the crowning of the maple queen, the “sap” run, bucket painting, maple candy carving, pancake breakfasts (with pure maple syrup), and pancake eating competitions.

Area sugar bushes also put their syrup to the test with syrup and maple candy judging.  Winning syrups are also auctioned off as part of the weekend entertainment.  Food choices include maple candy, maple corn, and the popular maple stirs available at the log cabin on the square.  Grand parades take place on Saturday and Sunday and showcase a lot of the community businesses and events.  Admission is free.
