Vermontville Maple Syrup Festival

The Vermontville (Michigan) Maple Syrup Festival starts at 10 a.m. 25 April with an arts and crafts show plus a flea market hosted by the Vermontville Woman's Club. It continues through the afternoon of 27 April, with a princess contest and egg toss that day.

In between are pancake breakfasts, BBQ chicken and roast beef dinners, a petting zoo and trolley rides. Oh, and yeah, there'll be lots of maple syrup! The tree is somewhat of an icon in the area, witness performances by the Maple Valley High School Choir.

Vermontville, a village west of Lansing, Michigan, was established in 1836. It boasts a population of 793 within its one-square-mile boundaries.
