As for morels, we have  sold hundreds of pounds of morels (raw, fried and at auction) and we're committed to making this festival the central location for morel lovers. We've even had booths each year selling morel related merchandise and we anticipate doubling the number of morel sellers next year and bringing in restaurants and stores to purchase morels in bulk. Our committee includes a licensed morel inspector.



Admission to the event was free but for $20, one can purchase a collectible tasting glass to sample the beer.
