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 Friday May 19th and Saturday May 20th , 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. The Food and Beverage tasting area will include:  Jody's Sugar Shack (chocolates), Meister Cheese,Moore Eggs, Studnicka Cattle Company and Wild Hills Winery.  


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.
