The Sunderland Maple Syrup Festival raises funds to support various local and municipal organizations and projects, including school programs. The Planning Committee volunteers spend many hours in planning and preparing for the fun-filled 2-day event. Many more volunteers support and help out during the festival weekend. We support the following organizations within our community and, within just the past 5 years, the Festival has distributed nearly $10,000 locally.

Plans are under way to make this year's festival the best we have ever had. Participants are lining up to enter our hugely popular bed races. The Durham West Tractor Pullers will be back for another year of ear shattering fun and the expansion of the Arts and Crafts show will round out this year's festival. We look forward to seeing you there.
Welcome to the 14th annual Sunderland Maple Syrup Festival. It is with great pride that the SMSF committee welcomes visitors to our small town to take part in our fun family festival. Look forward to seeing you on April 4th and 5th
