It’s finally back! The Mushroom Festival is returning to Pere Marquette Lodge and will be bigger than ever before! This event is free and open to the public and great for all ages! Come join us for live music, unique craft vendors, lunch in the restaurant, locally made wines, and all there is to know about Morel mushrooms!

The Great Morel Hunt will be held at 1 PM (weather and morel permitting). You’ll join fellow hunters from all over the area as you scan the ground for these delicious delicacies! If you’re new to mushroom hunting, not to worry! The Lodge will have 2 seasoned hunters out in the woods with you for help! Once the hunt is over, bring your finds back to the Lodge to see if you found the smallest, biggest, or most Morel shrooms. If you do, you’ll be taking home a free night stay to Marquette's one of a kind Lodge! The hunt is free! Please wear sturdy shoes as you will be on uneven ground. Spring is in the air and mushrooms are on the ground…let’s find 'em!
