This year, we have a great schedule of events planned for this year’s Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival taking place April 27-30. We will once again offer the events that have become festival staples: Arts & Craft Show, Pancake Dinners, Carnival, Old Car Show, Community Dance, and Tractor Pulls. The Flea Market, an event we introduced last year, will be returning for 2017. A brand-new event we’ve added to the schedule and which will take place on Saturday afternoon is the Demolition Derby.
Got some ‘Maple Syrup Festival ‘ t-shirts for sale. S-M-L-XL and 2xl. $10.00 each and 12.00 for a 2XL.
