Parke County Incorporated has a winter’s end treat in store for you. Parke County Maple Syrup Producers begin tapping the trees that provide sugar water for making maple syrup. Join us for two weekends of fun February 27-28 & Mar 5-6. MAPLE FAIR HEADQUARTERS is located one mile north of Rockville, Indiana on US 41 at the county’s 4-H Fairgrounds. Everyone from 4-H Junior Leaders, Girl Scouts and Senior Citizens get in the act when it is pancake flippin’ time. Pancakes with whole hog sausage and golden maple syrup are served daily from 8am to 4pm. Maple Syrup Producers at Smiley Sugar Camp, Sweetwater Farm, Baird’s, Meri-Arch Farms and Williams and Teague Sugar Camp invite you to visit them at the fairgrounds or at their camps. From primitive camps to the state of the art equipment , each camp gathers and boils sixty gallons of sugar water to make one gallon of golden maple syrup and each will explain their process. Maps and information are available at the headquarters that will lead you to the camps and the covered bridges of Parke County. In the 4-H Building is The Butcher Shop offering smoked ham, bacon, sausage as well as a variety of cheeses available for you to take some of the country flavor with you. Parke County Collectibles and other vendors are open daily. The commercial building behind the 4-H Building will offer a shopping delight for everyone after their meal! Plan on spending more than a day as Parke County has lots of things to see and do! Since 1972, the Parke Players have provided guests of the Maple Fair with great wholesome entertainment and this year is no different. Times, Dates, and production will be announced as the date draws closer. Tickets are only $7.00 per person and are available at the Ritz Theatre Box Office. Call 765-569-5226 or email about planning your visit to Parke County, The Covered Bridge Capital of the World®.
