Vermontville Maple Syrup Festival

Vermontville is home to the original maple syrup festival in Michigan held the last full weekend in April.

In 1940, during a conversation at the local barber shop, the Maple Syrup Festival was proposed. It began as a way to sell Maple Syrup and to promote the village, but has become so much more than that today.

Currently, all young women in their junior (grade 11) year at Maple Valley Schools are eligible to compete for the title of Vermontville Maple Syrup Festival Queen and her court. The festival is held the last full weekend in April.

Famous quotes containing the words festival and/or maple:

    The surest guide to the correctness of the path that women take is joy in the struggle. Revolution is the festival of the oppressed.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    Unloved, that beech will gather brown,
    This maple burn itself away;

    Unloved, the sun-flower, shining fair,
    Ray round with flames her disk of seed,
    And many a rose-carnation feed
    With summer spice the humming air;
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
