56th Annual National Morel Mushroom Festival

For anyone who thought fungus couldn’t be fun, this is the perfect opportunity to change minds! The 56th Annual National Morel Mushroom Festival will take place May 11-15 in Boyne City on beautiful Lake Charlevoix.

Come forage the woods in search of the rare morel mushrooms. For those who’ve never hunted for these tasty treats, don’t worry - a guided practice hunt is one of the activities on Friday the 13th. And at the Wine & Dine dinner sponsored by the Boyne Area Chamber of Commerce, mushrooms are guaranteed!

The National Morel Mushroom Hunting Championship is held on Saturday the 14th as part of the festival. Here, hunters can win prizes in a variety of categories.

There will also be a carnival with rides and games for the kids, mushroom seminars and the “Taste of Morels” where visitors can sample the best mushroom recipes from area restaurants. More information and a complete schedule of events can be found at bcmorelfestival.com.
