48th Annual Maple Syrup Festival
Date & Time:
This event is cancelled: The Forest Preserves is cancelling the 48th Annual Maple Syrup Festival at River Trail Nature Center due to concerns associated with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Maple Syrup Festival regularly attracts thousands of attendees and includes food samples and bus shuttles to the site from nearby parking, factors that could provide heightened conditions for community spread of the virus. Please note that other, smaller-scale events at River Trail Nature Center and throughout the Forest Preserves remain scheduled as of March 11, 2020.
We will continue to work with the Cook County Department of Public Health and the Cook County Department of Emergency Management and Regional Security to follow the latest guidelines and best practices for prevention of COVID-19.
