Each May, Boyne City fills with hundreds of mushroom lovers from around the country, all seeking that elusive delicacy - the magnificent morel. Found in nearby woods and clearings, morels are favored by those who know their 'shrooms.
As part of the Annual National Morel Mushroom Festival, Boyne Mountain hosts the Morelfest "Wine & Dine" on Friday, May 15. The event takes place at the Beach House restaurant on Deer Lake. This year, the event offers two seatings to accommodate the growing popularity of the event. The first seating is from 5:30 - 7:30pm and the second is 8 - 9:30pm.
Guests are treated to gourmet hors d'oeuvres prepared by the Boyne Mountain culinary team paired with fine wines from Bayside Beverage. Complimentary transportation provided by Charlevoix County Transit and the Boyne Area Chamber is offered from Veteran's Park in Boyne City to the Beach House Restaurant leaving at 5:15pm and returning at 7:30pm to Veteran's Park.
Tickets are $45 per person and can be purchased at the Boyne Area Chamber of Commerce or online at www.boynechamber.com.
Getting your butt kicked never felt so good! The 7th annual Dirty Dog Dash will leave you feeling dirty, tired, and fulfilled. The race route will cover 5 km of mountainous terrain with a bunch of obstacles thrown in along the way. Of course, we'll have live music to keep the party rolling long after the leftover mud from your personal conquest has dried.
In addition to the prizes awarded to the top finishers in each division, we'll crown winners for best costumes (Goofiest Dogs), team spirit (Spirit of the Dog), the "Dirtiest Dog," and more!
