Maine Maple Sunday weekend adapts to pandemic

Feb 25, 2021

The Maine Maple Producers Association will hold Maine Maple Sunday at sugar houses across the state March 27 and 28. Participating sugar houses are taking steps to follow CDC guidelines and prepare their facilities and staff to welcome guests safely on-site.

"This event is critical to the success of many family businesses and producers in Maine," said Scott Dunn, president of the MMPA. "The 38th annual event will certainly look and feel a bit different due to the pandemic, but we're ready. We have found creative ways to celebrate the event in different ways.

"Since each sugar house is unique in size and capacity, producers are adjusting their hours and purchase options, including curbside pick-up and online ordering. It is important for visitors to plan ahead by checking mainemapleproducers.com or calling your local producers about their plans for the event."

The event attracts thousands of visitors annually to sugar shacks throughout the state. In previous years, more than 100 sugarhouses have participated from Aroostook to York County.
