Geauga County Maple Festival in Chardon, Ohio:  Join in the fun as Geauga County celebrates the coming of spring and the year’s maple syrup crop. This festival occurs on Historic Chardon Square in the heart of Geauga County. For visitors looking for fun, there are all the traditional things a festival offers: rides, games, food & great entertainment. What sets this event aside is all of the Maple related activities that take place over the weekend, like the crowning of the Maple Queen, the “sap” run, bucket painting, Maple candy carving, Pancake Breakfasts (with pure maple Syrup), and pancake eating competitions.

Area sugar bushes also put their syrup to the test with syrup & maple candy judging. Winning syrups are also auctioned off as part of the weekend entertainment. Food choices include Maple candy, Maple corn, and the popular Maple stirs available at the Log cabin on the square. Grand parades take place Saturday and Sunday and showcase many community businesses and events. Check back to the website at, as schedules are constantly updated as the big event approaches. Don’t miss the fun!
