Pickens Maple Syrup Festival
Pickens Road, Pickens, WV 26288
In late winter, here in our mountains surrounding Pickens, when nights are freezing and days begin to warm, it’s maple sugaring time!
West Virginia has a long history of sugar making. The Indians made syrup first. The early settlers quickly learned to make the sweet stuff and use it as their main source of sugar. Today, maple syrup and sugar are widely used in cooking, baking, and as toppings.
Join us in Pickens for a full weekend of activities celebrating this tradition each year on the third full weekend in March!
