35th Annual Morel Mushroom Festival introduces new events

Posted: Updated:

MUSCODA (WKOW) -- Excitement is building for the 35th Annual Muscoda Morel Mushroom Festival, which will be held May 20 -21 in Muscoda.

Visitors from around the region make the annual day-trip to Wisconsin’s Morel Mushroom Capital the weekend after Mother’s Day to join thousands of morel maniacs as they come to buy morel mushrooms and enjoy the family fun at the Festival.

On Tuesday, Jill Makovec stopped by Wake Up Wisconsin to talk about the annual event and highlighted a few new activities.

The weekend festivities includes a Tasting Room, featuring locally-produced food products.  The Tasting Room is located at Mushroom Headquarters in the Kratochwill Memorial Building, in heart of downtown Muscoda. Visitors will find mushroom brats as well as samples of fried morel mushrooms, and a microbrew beer crafted locally by Wirtz Haus of Brew (while supplies last). 

A cooking demonstration by Inga Witscher, a fourth generation farmer and host of the popular PBS series, “Around the Farm Table” is another new feature this year being held Saturday at 2 p.m. in the St. John’s Parish Hall.
