Long Description:
Plessisville est considérée comme la Capitale mondiale de l’érable grâce à ses réserves d’arbres et aux nombreuses entreprises qui gèrent, transforment et commercialisent cette ressource naturelle de diverses façons. Par conséquent, les retombées économiques imputables à l’acériculture et à la production relevant de l’érable sont élevées, faisant en sorte que Plessisville a été proclamée « Capitale mondiale de l’Érable » en 1976. Aussi, à chaque année depuis 1958, Plessisville est l’hôte du Festival de l’Érable, et ce, au début du mois de mai.
