Order of Toffy

Every year the Maple Sugar Festival du Sucre d'Érable offers an excellent School Program during the week in which the Festival takes place.

Presentations take on different flavours every year. They can take place in the schools themselves, at which both a workshop and concert, which acknowledge the theme of the Festival, are offered. As well, students can visit the Festival site to partake in sugar shack traditions.

Students will visit the Festival site at Beban Social Centre in Nanaimo from February 21 to 22. They will delight in tasting the popular toffy on snow, soufflé omelet and tarte au sucre (sugar pie) while listening to the energetic music of Le groupe Swing (elementary school students) and (middle and high school students).
