The University of Maine at Fort Kent will host its annual “Sucrerie” on Thursday, March 22, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Nowland Hall.

The “maple sugar recreation” has drawn more than 300 community members to campus in years past. The event features a traditional maple taffy pull on the snow, an Acadian meal and live entertainment by Warren and Joan Harvey.

The maple taffy pull and taste testing is onsite and served over the snow for community members to enjoy are free to the public. The public is encouraged to attend the “Sucrerie.”

All ployes will be served by staff, faculty and student volunteers, who will be dressed in Acadian attire provided by the Acadian Festival Committee.

A nominal fee of $10 per plate will be charged for the Acadian meal and entertainment, only. The committee has worked with Sodexo dining services, to create the perfect menu for the event.

UMFK continues to preserve and foster an appreciation of the Acadian and Franco-American heritage and culture by hosting annual events, such as the “Sucrerie” and the “Fiddlers’ Jamboree.”
