Join us November 7-16 for the 14th Annual Mushroom, Wine & Beer Festival, a celebration of the Mushroom, our county’s favorite fungi. 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!).
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! There’s even a Passport event that you can join in—visit wineries and breweries to enter a drawing for a Grand Prize!
Take your time to discover all that Mendocino County has to offer: gourmet restaurants, unique inns, picturesque villages, friendly wineries, outstanding breweries, majestic redwoods, and rugged seaside. Climb aboard the Beer, Wine & Mushroom Train, indulge yourself with a gourmet mushroom feast at an amazing winemaker or brewmaster dinner, then cozy up by the fire at the end of your perfect day in one of Mendocino County’s unique inns and rest up so you can start the next day with a cooking class, join a foraging adventure, attend a performance, take an art walk, or simply relax and do nothing at all.
