The Shack is Back for its Sweetest Event yet

TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today on National Maple Syrup Day, Sugar Shack TO, presented by Redpath Sugar, is thrilled to announce its sweet return to Toronto’s waterfront. On March 11 and 12, 2023, this annual outdoor event will transform Sugar Beach into a Canadiana extravaganza featuring all things maple.

In 2020, two days before Sugar Shack TO was supposed to happen, COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic which resulted in the cancellation of all festivals and events. After three years and three cancelled events, the producers are thrilled to finally return to Sugar Beach with a line-up of Canadian entertainment, comfort food, activities and of course tons of maple taffy.

“We are more than excited to bring Sugar Shack TO back to Toronto’s waterfront for a safe outdoor event,” said Victoria Mahoney, co-producer. “The 2023 event will be sweeter than ever as it will bring together our amazing waterfront partners, local businesses and visitors for a much-needed maple celebration.”

WHEN Saturday, March 11, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 12, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
