2024 Paris Lions Maple Syrup Festival: A Sweet Celebration in the Heart of Ontario

Event Date: April 13, 2024, 7:00 am – 3:00 pm

Nestled in the picturesque town of Paris, hailed as one of Canada’s “prettiest small towns” and among Ontario’s best hamlets, the 2024 Paris Lions Maple Syrup Festival promises a delightful kickoff to spring on April 13, 2024, from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm.

A Sweet Tradition Continues

Known as the end of Paris’s winter hibernation, this annual festival marks the first outdoor event of the year, drawing locals and visitors alike to embrace the spirit of the town. Celebrate the day with a scrumptious pancake breakfast featuring REAL maple syrup, savory breakfast sausages, and a variety of Food and Craft Vendors.

Supporting the Community

The Paris Lions Club initiated the Maple Syrup Festival in 2012, with the late Lion Dan Moore envisioning the club’s Food Truck as the primary fundraiser. What started on William Street has evolved into a beloved tradition on Grand River Street North, demonstrating the town’s growth and the festival’s success.

Growing Through Challenges

Over the years, the festival has faced various challenges, including weather setbacks and the pandemic’s impact in 2020 and 2021. Yet, the Paris Lions Club’s resilience and creativity shone through with initiatives like the “Catch the Ace” draw and a “drive-thru” dining experience in 2022 at the Paris Fairgrounds.

Join the Celebration

As the town looks forward to the 2024 Maple Syrup Festival, locals and visitors can anticipate a day filled with sweet indulgence, community spirit, and a celebration of Paris’s unique charm. Whether enjoying a delicious pancake breakfast, exploring craft vendors, or simply reveling in the festivities, this event promises a delightful experience for all.
