56th ANNUAL NATIONAL MOREL MUSHROOM FESTIVAL
May 11 – 15, 2016
Boyne City, Michigan
BOYNE CITY: If you thought fungus couldn’t be fun, this is the perfect opportunity to change your mind! 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. If you’ve never hunted for these tasty treats, don’t worry – a guided practice hunt is one of the activities on Friday the 13th. And you don’t want to miss the Wine & Dine dinner sponsored by the Boyne Area Chamber of Commerce – mushrooms 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.
