Candy, donuts, creemees and flapjacks are infused with the state’s famous flavor at the annual Vermont Maple Festival. Now in its 51st year, this sugary shindig offers three days of mouthwatering merriment, including a pancake breakfast, a maple barbecue dinner and a maple beverage tasting hosted by 14th Star Brewing. Once they’ve gotten their fill of tasty treats, revelers can indulge in live entertainment ranging from music to dance to a fiddlers’ variety show to puppet shows by No Strings Marionette. An antiques show, a parade and the yearly 8.5-mile Sap Run foot race round out the season’s sweetest soirée.
