Maple Syrup Festival

April 26-29, 2018 - Downtown Shepherd

All work on the syrup, candy, and all other areas of the festival is voluntary and almost everyone participates! Children work with adults carrying sap buckets during the sap run in late February or early March. Many retirees are our most faithful sausage makers. Would you believe that we make two and a half tons of sausage on the Saturday before the festival?

Other pre-festival activities include a queen’s pageant, parade, and candy making. Then we all work together again during the festival weekend.  As usual there will be the famous and delicious Pancake, Maple Syrup, and Sausage Meals served at the Shepherd High School Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon.
