Event Setting

Thurman is a quiet Adirondack community that caters to those looking to escape into the sublime wilderness. Mountains, rivers, and country roads make this small town a great place to relax or explore the outstanding nature-inspired adventure. Thurman comes to life during Thurman Maple Days and New York State Maple Weekends, keeping the town hopping the last three weekends of March, when visitors are invited to explore the many sugarhouses of Thurman, reputed to have more maple operations per square mile than anywhere around.
