Maple Weekend Fun

By Jamie Kauffold | March 18, 2023

Northern Lower Michigan celebrates our Michigan Maple Weekend 2023 on March 25-26. A local spot celebrating is Out of the Woods Farm in Rapid City. Head there Saturday between 10am and 4pm to take a farm tour, learn about the maple process, sample products, and purchase your favorites to take home. (That includes maple syrup, sugar, cream, candy, and fresh maple cotton candy.) Admission is free. Find “MI Maple Weekend – Out of the Woods Farm” on Facebook.
