Make the most of your mushrooms at the annual Mushroom Festival at Piasa Winery in Grafton, Illinois. The day-long event on April 28th, 2013, is dedicated to celebrating the versatility of the mushroom and features all kinds of earthy creations.

Guests can sample mushroom-themed dishes from local chefs as they compete in a mushroom cook-off, and $10 buys them all the samples they can handle as well as a glass of wine. Afterwards they can vote on their favorite dish to determine which chef takes home top honors.

Attendees can also bring in mushrooms of their own to compete in the biggest and smallest mushroom contest, with the winner taking home the mushroom trophy, and, of course, bragging rights for the next year.

For information about the festival, visit their website or contact them on Facebook.

      Yes! The festival is still on. I emailed Piasa Winery in response to your questions and this is what I received back:

      “Yes, we’re still having the festival. The water is up to our backyard, but all our seating is OK, and we plan to use the building next door for the chefs to hand out their food samples. They can check us out on Facebook if they have it, and we’ll keep everyone updated about the festival and other events!”

      So keep up with Piasa Winery on Facebook for updates! Thanks for your questions,
