37th Annual IL Maple Syrup Festival


What better way to kick off spring than by attending the 37th Annual Indian Lake Maple Syrup Festival & Pancake Breakfast this weekend? Nothing says spring like maple syrup.

The festival is an annual event hosted by the Indian Lake Development Corporation (ILDC) to help raise funds for various community projects around Indian Lake.  The ILDC is a non-profit organization, full of volunteers, that was established in 1983 to help improve the Indian Lake State Park, in conjunction with the state park manager.

This year the event has expanded, and if you can’t make it out on Saturday, they are open on Sunday too. You can shop over 20 local craft & food vendors, listen to live music throughout each day, take a wagon ride through the sugar bush, the kids can bounce in the bounce houses and castles and have their faces painted, and don’t forget about the fantastic breakfast.


Breakfast is $8 for adults and $4 for children 8 and under & includes homemade pancakes, sausage, and your choice of orange juice, coffee, or water. And of course real maple syrup.
