The 2022 Morel Fest-Saturday May 14

Proudly Organized by the Village of Muscoda Festival Committee 


 ***The 2022 Morel Fest has taken on life after the pandemic.  This year's events will be held on Saturday May 14th starting at 9:00am, except for the “Cruise to the Festival” which will be Friday evening, and will conclude with the fireworks show at dusk.   All activities will be held outdoors.  The Home Grown Parade will start at 3pm and the famous Firemens Steak feed will begin at 5pm.  A list of activities will be posted shortly**** 

To kick off the Festival this year, we will be hosting a “Cruise to the Festival” on Friday evening from 5p-8p on the paved parking lot of the Riverdale Bus Garage in the 500 Block of North Wisconsin Avenue.  If you think you have a mode of transportation that is “cool” bring it on over.  Jose’s Mexican Food Truck will be on site for your food needs.  

Morel mushroom fever strikes Wisconsin every spring. The enthusiasm for a trek to the Muscoda Morel Fest held annually the weekend after Mother's Day, this year on Saturday May 14th , is so extreme you’d think there was gold in ‘them thar hills.’ Muscoda, Wisconsin’s Morel Mushroom Capital, is located in the heart of the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway following the graceful curves of the Wisconsin River. It’s the perfect day trip and opportunity to join thousands of morel maniacs from around the region. 

 

The Muscoda Morel Fest offers family fun for children and adults. The festivities include bounce houses, arts and crafts fair, Bartels Chainsaw Carving Show, the Volunteer Fire Department Steak Feed, Kinschi Pedal Pulls, Fireworks and a Parade at 3pm with members from “Echoes of Camp Randall” participating. The Food and Beverage tasting area will include:  Meister Cheese, Wild Hills Winery, The Lift Room Shakes & Teas and the Softball Team will be serving up ice cream and cupcakes. 

 

The Avoca, Blue River & Muscoda Lions Club will be hosting a CASI (Chili Appreciation Society International) Chili Cookoff just around the corner from Mushroom Headquarters.  The American Legion Post will provide it’s famous burgers and, if available, fried morel mushroom.  Mushroom Brats will also be sold at Mushroom Headquarters. 

 

The “morel” of the story is the trip to the Muscoda Morel Fest is a tradition that should not be missed. This spring time adventure can’t be put off, as morels are only around for a few weeks each year.
