Thank you for supporting our event on Saturday, November 2, 2019!

This unique event is the first of its kind in the world.

Highlighting craft maple syrup producers and craft maple brewers from across the country, it allows the growing craft maple industry to meet and collaborate for the first time.

In addition, the Festival will welcome craft shoppers and craft beer enthusiasts to experience the Village of Jefferson, Ohio.

The Jefferson Area Chamber of Commerce is proudly hosting the second Craft Maple Festival on November 2, 2019. After last year’s event, which was named the “Maple Festival of the Year” by Ohio Magazine, the Chamber is aiming for an even more successful and impactful event.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Jefferson Area Chamber of Commerce.

The success of this year’s Craft Maple Festival will allow the Chamber to fund scholarships for local students and explore new ways of giving back to our community including things like community development, business incubation, and trades scholarships.

This year’s festival will be held at Bissell Maple Farm at 82 West Ashtabula Street, Jefferson, Ohio 44047 and will feature a free community pancake breakfast and vendor event and Bissell Maple Farm factory tours during the day. The event will cap off with a Craft Beer Brewers Party in the evening that is expected to bring brewers from all over the United States to our community.
