UMFK to host its annual "Sucrerie" on March 14

March 4, 2019

UMFK College Students enjoying the Sucrerie and maple taffy on the snowThe University of Maine at Fort Kent will host its annual “Sucrerie” on Thursday, March 14, 2019 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.     

The maple taffy pull and taste testing 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. 

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.”

Local school teachers interested in bringing their classes to the event should contact the University Relations office in advance.
