To show support for the Elmira Region and surrounding community, the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival has partnered with the Elmira Business Improvement Area (BIA) and the Township of Woolwich to launch the “Elmira We Are Local” campaign for 2022. This campaign will highlight local businesses in Elmira and surrounding areas that have supported the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival over the past 57 years. The campaign takes place from March 24-April 3, 2022, with the goal of encouraging patrons to support the local Elmira and surrounding businesses in lieu of a traditional festival.
