                        2016 Maple Syrup Festival was a huge success!

Freeberg Pancake Breakfast CrowdWe'd like to extend our thanks to everyone who attended the Maple Syrup Festival and Pancake Breakfast.  We served nearly 1000 pancake breakfasts that weekend.  

Everyone enjoyed two full days of family fun including maple syrup demonstrations, tree identification hikes, blacksmith demonstrations, lumberjack demonstrations, our portable climbing wall, live music, vendors and artisans, and much more.  We hope you enjoyed it and look forward in seeing you at next year's festival.  Tell us how we did.  Send your feedback to tonec@siu.edu.
