Toronto is getting a sugar shack on the waterfront

Toronto's Sugar Beach will be getting even more saccharine in March as it transforms into a Québec-style cabane à sucre (that's sugar shack) for one weekend only.

On March 12 and 13, you won't have to drive out of the city to head out on your own sugaring off field trip. Instead, head towards Lake Ontario to get your maple syrup fix.

Along with chugging tasting maple syrup, you'll have the chance to hear performances from musicians, including Stef Paquette, Mélanie Brulée and Amélies et les Singes Blues. Choir!Choir!Choir! will also be hosting a sing-a-long on Saturday, March 12.

Waterfront Toronto is hosting this event and it'll be offering a shuttle between Sugar Beach, the Distillery District and Union Station all weekend long.

If you're looking for something to cut through all the sweetness, you can also expect to see local food trucks on site.
