2021 National Morel Mushroom Festival
In accordance with local health department orders and to help protect all festival goers, masks are required for all activities taking place in Veteran’s Park for the 2021 National Morel Mushroom Festival.

Masks must be worn at all times, unless eating or drinking.
We ask everyone to follow social distancing guidelines and remain six feet apart from those not in your household.
The Arts & Crafts Show will be in a fenced in perimeter with a separate entrance and exit and no more than 500 attendees gathered at one time. Booths will be set up six feet apart with line guides indicating up and down directions for foot traffic. There will be hand sanitizing stations throughout the show.
