Join the park in a 45-year old tradition in the Catoctin Mountains of Maryland! Watch as park rangers demonstrate the traditional way to craft this sweet concoction. Enjoy kid’s activities while listening to live folk and bluegrass music in a large heated tent.

For an additional charge (cash only) a delicious hot pancake and sausage breakfast will be served from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm (or until sold out). Maryland-made maple syrup and maple candy will be available for sale. Proceeds benefit the ‘Friends of Cunningham Falls and Gambrill State Parks.’ Park gates open at 9:00 a.m. and close at sunset. A sign language interpreter will be stationed at the maple syrup demonstration site on both Sundays. Pets are not permitted inside buildings or tent. Cost is $2 per person/$1 per person youth group.
