Credit Valley Conservation Cancels 2020 Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival

Friday, March 13, 2020 by Credit Valley Conservation

Credit Valley Conservation (CVC), in partnership with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), regrettably announces the cancellation of its upcoming 2020 Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival at Terra Cotta and Island Lake Conservation Areas. The safety and well-being of our patrons and staff is our key priority. 

The cancellation is in line with the recent announcement from Ontario’s chief medical officer of health recommending the immediate suspension of all large events and public gatherings of more than 250 people, and follows risk assessments conducted by CVC and TRCA.

The 2020 Sugarbush Maple Syrup Festival and Black Creek Pioneer Village March Break cancellation effects the following locations and dates:

Terra Cotta Conservation Area – weekends (March 14 – April 5) and March Break (March 16 – 20)

Island Lake Conservation Area – March 20, 21 & 28

Kortright Centre for Conservation – from March 14 – April 12

Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area – from March 14 – April 12, including March Break (March 16 – 20) and Good Friday (April 10)
