Come Try Bigleaf Maple Syrup & Learn How to Tap at The Bigleaf Maple Festival This May!

On Saturday May 13, 2023, Oregon State University is hosting Oregon’s first ever Bigleaf Maple Festival at the 4-H Center in West Salem! Bigleaf maple syrup and other bigleaf-sourced foods are on the rise with Oregon farmers, homesteaders and foresters starting to tap their trees and make products for the local marketplace. It's the beginning of an exciting new and sustainable industry for Oregon! The bigleaf festival is a family friendly event where you can taste different bigleaf syrups, see setups for the hobbyist and the commercial producer, and talk with experts at mini-workshops. The festival will have kids’ activities, syrup boiling demonstrations, nature walks, food and live Americana acoustic music. Come experience the wonder of bigleaf maple sugaring!

You must have a ticket to attend, and tickets must be purchased online. Visit www.oregontreetappers.net/festival for details.
