Pickens, West Virginia Maple Syrup Festival
You can enjoy two days of all-you-can-eat pancakes and buckwheat cakes smothered with locally made maple syrup. During the weekend, you can also take a tour at Richter’s Maplehouse and learn how the syrup is made from start to finish. Food trucks and arts and craft vendors will be selling their goods for you to enjoy throughout the day. A wood-chopping exhibit, a display showcasing beautiful homemade quilts, and a photography show by the Buckhannon-Upshur Camera Club will all be part of the schedule of events. Different live performances and entertainment will also be held at the historic Opera House. We suggest stopping by the Craft Store and buying a maple flavored pasalubong. All proceeds will benefit the town and used for community projects as well as the upkeep of historic buildings. These activities will have you spending your whole day in Pickens.
