Each May, Boyne City MI fills with hundreds of mushroom lovers from around the country who come seeking that elusive delicacy - the marvelous morel. Found in nearby woods and clearings, morels are favored by those who know their ‘shrooms.
For a few short days, everything is all about mushrooms. Restaurants prepare exotic, morel-laden entrees, local songsters sing of the morel, secret hunting places (maybe) and recipes (definitely) are shared, and everybody goes on one of the mushroom hunts. A good year can yield thousands of the mouth-watering treats. But, even when a dry spell or late spring makes morels scarce, morels can be tasted at the ‘Taste of Morels' and the festival is always fun for everyone.◂ Return to Events Calendar
