Mendocino County Beer, Wine & Mushroom FestivalFood

The highlight of mushroom season is Mendocino County's Annual 10-day Beer, Wine & Mushroom Festival. We craft a myriad of events for your delight: mushroom, winemaker, and brewmaster dinners, mushroom exhibits, guided mushroom forays, wine and mushroom pairings, and much more!

We celebrate these tender morsels every year in late October. As the first rains start to fall, mushrooms flourish in abundance in Mendocino County, which is home to over 3,000 types of mushrooms. It's the perfect place to sample and pick some of the 500 types of delicious edible mushrooms such as chanterelles, porcinis, morels, and hedgehogs, and even the extremely rare candy cap mushroom, a culinary treat with an intense maple syrup flavor, which grows only along the northern coast of California (and makes for delicious ice cream!).

There's even a Passport event that you can join--visit wineries and breweries to enter a drawing for a Grand Prize!
