As part of the 2015 National Maple Syrup Festival being held in Brown County, Ind., campfire cooking extraordinaire Lesley Tennessen, better known as the Dutch Oven Diva, will prepare sweet and savory maple-based food creations in the Brown County State Park on March 7 and 8.
Inside Indiana Business
Brown County hosts 5th National Maple Syrup Festival, March 5-8, 2015, KPC Media Group, Kendallville, Ind.
Geographically, Indiana holds the southern and westernmost position in the United States’ Maple Sugar Belt. The sap flows first here, and the National Maple Syrup Festival will again celebrate that distinction March 5-8, 2015, in its new location – Brown County. The event will expand considerably to include the Story Inn, Brown County State Park and two venues in downtown Nashville. The move includes a plan to create a statewide brand for Indiana maple sugar producers, and the 2015 Festival overview is here.
To those who have enjoyed past festivals, the idea that it will return even bigger and better in 2015 will make the wait worthwhile. “It’s like turning back the clock at the festival,” says artist Kathy Blankenheim. “You see scenes that you don’t see in today’s world.”
