1 year ago

FORT KENT, Maine — The University of Maine at Fort Kent will host its annual “Sucrerie” on Thursday, March 9 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Nowland Hall.

The “maple sugar recreation” has drawn more than 200 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 UMFK employees wearing Acadian attire.  

A nominal fee of $12 per plate will be charged for the Acadian meal and entertainment. The committee has worked with Sodexo dining services to create the perfect menu for the event. 

Specific areas will be designated parking for community members. 

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.”
