This one day spring festival celebrates Elmira’s history as a maple syrup producing community.

Join us on Saturday April 7, 2018

The Elmira Maple Syrup Festival builds and strengthens community spirit through the involvement of a large number of area residents in the planning and operation of a one day festival. Participation in a fun filled day supported by 2000+ volunteers raises funds to support local charities and non-profit organizations. Since 1965, the Festival continues to promote our community, surrounding areas and local maple syrup producers.

Profits Support Local Organizations

Since its inception, all proceeds from the Festival are returned to the community, to both charitable and not-for-profit organizations. In 2001, the Festival was the proud recipient of the Outstanding Philanthropic Action award from the Foundation for Rural Living. And, at the completion of the 2002 Festival, the total monies raised for these community groups surpassed the one million dollar mark.

Traditionally, 40 percent of the profits are allocated annually to the Elmira District Association for Community Living with the remaining amounts shared among selected organizations. We are very pleased to be able to support the following organizations within our community:

  • Elmira District Community Living
  • 1st Elmira Scout
