Mountain State Maple Days

February 17, 2024 at Variety of Times

Free to attend

Celebrate all things syrup with the West Virginia Maple Syrup Producers Association (WVMSPA) during the Sixth annual Mountain State Maple Days. On Saturday, February 17, 2024, and Saturday, March 16, 2024, “sugarhouses” and businesses throughout Mountaineer Country, and all of West Virginia will be taking part in this annual celebration as a way to celebrate the maple industry within West Virginia. 

Take advantage and learn how maple syrup is produced locally when sugarhouses and businesses open their doors to the public during Mountain State Maple Days. Go behind the scenes to get a glimpse at the process that goes into making each golden drop of maple syrup. This process has been refined for hundreds of years, becoming a regional tradition and staple in homes across West Virginia.

Join WVMSPA in celebrating by sampling maple syrup-inspired menus, watching a tapping demonstration, and supporting locally-owned businesses that produce this West Virginia-grown product every day in Almost Heaven.
