Maple Leaf Festival
Saturday, October 16, 2021 | 8:00 am Saturday, October 16 - 7:00 pm Sunday, October 17
The Maple Leaf Festival began as a community event in 1958, inspired by Dr. Ivan Boyd, a biology professor at Baker University as well as Dr. Charles Doudna, Bill Horn, Leo Smith and C. R. Whitley. Dr. Boyd noted that the third weekend in October was the optimum time to view the changing colors of the Maple Leaves in the area and the perfect time to celebrate the successful harvest.
60 years later, with over 300 craft exhibits, quilt shows and displays, performing arts, music, unique food items and activities for the family, the Maple Leaf Festival is the biggest fall family event in the area and provides an opportunity for local non-profit organizations to raise fund
The two day festival occurs on the third full weekend of October.
Historic buildings, unique restaurants and retail, brick streets, pocket gardens, a fountain, murals, and a town square with a stage and splash pad. Downtown Baldwin City really does have it all.
