2024 Maple Days

Enjoy the sweet experience of Mountain State Maple Days in Pocahontas County, West Virginia!

2024 Mountain State Maple Days in Nature’s Mountain Playground! 

Mountain State Maple Days in Nature’s Mountain Playground will take place Saturday, February 17 & Saturday, March 16, 2024 @ 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. 

West Virginia is home to one of the largest concentrations of Maple trees in the country and folks have been tapping trees for centuries, capturing the sweet water from the Maple and creating the delectable maple syrup. Today several family farms in Pocahontas County still harvest the sweet water and produce maple syrup and other maple products. Visitors can experience this tradition during the annual Mountain State Maple Days. Plan your winter weekend getaway around the events on Saturday February 17th and March 16th to enjoy not only winter outdoor adventure but also the sweet experience of sugar camp tours, special restaurant maple menus and more.
