Since 1984, Kings Landing has opened its doors each spring to celebrate New Brunswick’s longstanding tradition of maple syrup making. Here’s why you’ll want to make sure you don’t miss out this year:
1. Maple Syrup
It’s our national treasure for a reason. That reason is deliciousness. Tasty!
You will not find a better photo-op in March. Seriously. Rustic barns, horse-drawn wagons, open fires, maple candy, a 19th century sawmill—all nestled along the majestic Saint John River. Perfect your poses now.
3. Craft Beer
Picaroons will be offering free samples of their Simeon Jones River Valley Amber Ale. Pints can be purchased at the King’s Head Inn pub.
It’s not every day you get to hop on a horse-drawn wagon and get around town 1800s style.
If you’re up for it, Sugar Bush is the perfect opportunity to sample this delicacy that was once a staple in rural New Brunswick.
6. Making History Awesome
Did you know that when the Loyalists settled in New Brunswick in the late-1700s, families spent 5-6 weeks camping in the woods together each spring to prepare maple sugar? Come pay homage to this sweet 200+ year old tradition.
If you purchase an AMBASSADOR season pass during Sugar Bush, you’ll save $25. This pass lets you and 3 guests of any age visit Kings Landing – any time you want, as many times as you want – from June 10 until October 9, 2017.
8. (Mostly) Unselfish Pancakes
York Sunbury Search & Rescue will be serving up their 25th annual fundraising breakfast from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day of Sugar Bush. Come stuff your face with pancakes and support a good cause!
