If you’ve been planning a visit to my beautiful state, Vermont, the weekend of March 24th and 25th would be a great time to come. Vermont’s maple festivities will be in full swing with Open House Weekend. Open House Weekend is a public celebration of the maple season in Vermont and most sugar maker’s open their property to the public to sample, observe, and delight in the maple syrup process. As anyone who reads my personal blog knows I have a deep love for maple and use it constantly in cooking!
A great resource for events going on over the weekend is the Official Website for Vermont Maple Syrup. This site offers a clickable county-by-county feature to look at events.
If you continue on into Jeffersonville (home of Smuggler’s Notch) you can swing into the Vermont Maple Outlet or go to Lasting Spring Maple Farm for their open house complete with coloring book activities for kids. You can grab lunch at The Mix Cafe in Jeffersonville which according to Vermont Life has the best Grench toast in Vermont. I can definitely concur on this- it is delicious. End the day at Smuggler’s Notch for some afternoon skiing and head to Three Mountain Lodge for a family-friendly meal. Learn to love maple!
