Maple Open House Weekend

The annual statewide celebration March 23 & 24 is bigger than ever with 138 participating locations

JERICHO, VT / March 10, 2019 – Vermont leads the nation by a commanding margin as the top maple producing state. Total US maple syrup production in 2018 was 4.1 million gallons, with Vermont’s contribution accounting for more than 1.9 million of those gallons. In the spirit of friendly competition (‘tis the season of March Madness after all), Maple Open House Weekend, March 23 & 24th , is a chance for Vermont sugar makers to do their victory dance while opening the doors of their sugarhouses for visitors traveling from near and far wanting to see, taste, and experience firsthand why people should think of Vermont first when they think of maple syrup. With an estimated 40K+ visitors touring the state for last year’s event, we can expect that number to grow with the expansion and draw from twenty-two new participating locations on the map in 2019. In addition to sugarhouse experiences, event weekend visitors can expect to be amazed by the extensive display of maple uses showcased by partnering local Vermont businesses who specialize in their own craft and support Vermont’s maple industry by including maple in their ingredients, on their menus, and offered for sale at their locations.
