Maple Season In Lake George & The Adirondacks
March is one of the sweetest times of year in Lake George and the Adirondacks: maple season!
Behind Vermont, New York State is the second-largest maple syrup producer in the country, and we celebrate that fact all month long.
Thurman Maple Days
The Thurman area, about a half hour drive from Lake George Village, hosts three weekends worth of Thurman Maple Days each year. This year's Thurman Maple Days are slated for March 11 & 12, March 18 & 19, and March 25 & 26.
During the designated weekends, four farms in the region welcome visitors for open houses, tutorials on the sugaring process, syrup samplings, pancake breakfasts, kids' activities, and so much more.
The participating farms are:
- Adirondack Gold Maple Farm, 74 Bear Pond Road, Athol, NY
- Valley Road Maple Farm, 190 Valley Road, Thurman, NY
- Hidden Hollow Maple Farm, 312 Dippikill Road, Warrensburg, NY
- Toad Hill Maple Farm, 151 Charles Olds Road, Athol, NY
New York State Maple Weekends
The maple celebration continues state-wide during two New York State Maple Weekends each year! This year's maple weekends are March 18 & 19 and March 25 & 26. More than 130 locations participate in maple weekends, offering open houses, public demonstrations, family-friendly fun, and more.
