WIARTON ROTARY MAPLE MAGIC

Open 9:00 A.M. to 1:00 PM
Welcome to Maple Magic, located at Regal Point Elk Farm, near Wiarton Ontario! Wiarton Rotary Club is once again happy to host Ontario’s most unique Maple festival.
From the parking lot you will make your way to the wagon and ride back to the Sugar Shack. As you ride the wagon to the sugar shack, you’ll pass several elk fields while enjoying the view of over 100 magnificent elk.
Please note that Rotary’s Maple Magic event admission is by donation. Please be generous as Wiarton Rotary puts all profits back into our community.
The list is long and the choices many as to what to do next? Come and enjoy a traditional pancake meal, or the ever-so-popular Peaches and Cream pancakes. Maple syrup doesn’t get any fresher or more local as it is made just steps away from the dining hall. Full pancake meals may be purchased from both the indoor Dining Hall and outdoors from the General Store. Meals served from the General Store can by enjoyed at our outdoor picnic tables under cover.
Mount Haymore is definitely the kids favourite! Mount Haymore is a 3-layer high, giant playground complete with climbing and sliding fun for all. Be sure to get your I Climbed Mount Haymore sticker. Then its time to move over to BushPlay, a most unique play experience right in the bush. The merry-go-round is a highlight.
The next experience is the Willie Walk. Find the 10 hidden action figures of Wiarton Willie hidden along a trail through the bush. There are 2 other trails that you might want to enjoy:
1) BLACK HOLE TRAIL: this is a 5-minute walk into the bush to see a geological formation that could be described as a vertical cave. You will see signs on the trees where the resident porcupine has been eating,
2) 1 Km LOOP TRAIL: this will burn off a few calories for you. The trail takes you through the Maple bush and brings you back at the General Store.
PETTING ZOO & PONY RIDES– once again, we have Glendale Farms joining us; and for a small price your kids can enjoy some animal fun
MAPLE EQUIPMENT TOUR: – join equipment tour guides Mike or Dave to get the tour of our 3,000-tap maple operation. You will see the latest technology in maple production which includes Ontario’s first and only electric evaporator.

11:00 A.M. – LAND OF GIANTS TOUR– from our local community, we have gathered together close to 4-million-dollars worth of monster equipment. See and touch some very impressive machines.
12:00 noon – LOG SAWING COMPETITION– a visitor favourite every year! You are the entertainment here! Teams of 2 will compete to see who has the fastest times. This is a team event that requires speed and coordination. Great fun to watch, even more fun to try.
