The festival originated in Medora, Indiana, in 2010. The festival quickly outgrew Medora and moved to Brown County.  Brown County is Indiana's most densely forested county and an ideal location for the festival as it is rich in natural resources, home to a wide variety of maple trees, and reflects the pioneering essence and history of maple sugar production.
