Maple Syrup Events are a Sure Sign Spring is Coming to Michigan

One of the best ways to welcome spring in Michigan is to jump feet-first into maple syrup season. With the longer days, birds chirping, and tulips dotting the entrances at Meijer Gardens, it’s no surprise that most of GR’s residents have a case of spring fever.

Tapping trees for maple syrup is a time-honored spring tradition in West Michigan, and another great sign that warmer weather is on its way.

If you’d like to usher in spring with all things maple, this is the list for you.

Looking for more things to do this spring? Check the mega events calendar here.

Watch Syrup Being Made, eat all of the Pancakes, and Simply Enjoy Nature.

Many events require registration and sell out every year – sign up soon!

Happy sugar shack season, Grand Rapids.
