Getting to the Sugar Bush

bus-iconHandicap-parking-onlyPlease note, there is no parking at the bush except for a limited amount of handicap parking. The best and most convenient way to take in the whole festival is to park in the Village of Warkworth and hop on a free shuttle bus, compliments of AMES Bus Lines.

Buses run continually both days, between 8:30 am and 3 pm, going to and from the Sugar Bush. Many people report the 5 mile ride to the sugar bush in a school bus filled with all ages is one of the highlights of their day.

guide-dog-iconOnly Service Dogs are allowed at the Sugar Bush. This means we can only allow Service Dogs on the buses too.
