National Morel Mushroom Festival

Friday, May 17, 2019 at 3:30pm

Downtown Boyne City
Boyne City, MI 49712

3:30 pm - Free Morel Seminar - A free one-hour seminar in the festival tent with great tips on finding morels in the woods, featuring local morel hunting expert Anthony Williams.  Tony is a multiple winner of the National Mushroom Hunt. New this year, Tony will be joined by Rose Newton, a certified morel and wild mushroom identification expert. She will be sharing tips and information on uses of mushrooms from cooking to medicine, traditions and explaining how fungus is a critical component of bioremediation for our environment.

5 pm Friday Evening Guided Morel Hunt.  $25.00 per person. The Guided Hunt is designed as an educational morel hunt with guides that will help you identify morel hunting areas as well as other edibles in the woods.  There is no guarantee that you will find morels, but you will gain “a bag full of knowledge” about morels and other edibles in the northern Michigan forest.  You may bring a sack, walking shoes, water and a cell phone.  Buses depart from Veterans Park following the Morel Seminar at 5 p.m.   Plan on returning to Veterans Park by 7:00 p.m.
