Mesick is the Mushroom
Capital of the United States.
Spring brings GREAT things
like Mothers Day, Steelhead fishing, beautiful flowers and woodland
surprises such as tasteful morel mushrooms with of coarse our annual
Mesick mushroom festival. Mesick MI. is the mushroom capital in
the United States. Come enjoy our adventurous fun filled days, for
people of all ages. Carnival rides for the thrill seekers, crafts
and hobbies or flea market for treasure hunters, ball games for
the players. Several contests for mushroom hunters, lucky duck race,
horseshoe toss, horse pull. View our antique car show and Grand
Parade. Have your blood pressure or sugar tested before tasting
lots of good food like BBQ chicken, baked goods, pasties, a fish
dinner or taco night and of coarse the usual fair goodies.
Then wash it all down
at our beer tent. Look for cash at our money hunt, games for the
game boys or girls and (not the hand held kind). But you can walk
around holding hands with your loved ones, or try our 5 K walk/run.
And for all you mud pie makers as kids. Don’t throw mud with
your (words) tongue or your hands. Watch the Mug bog racers throw
some really wet earth up into the air. It’s safer this way.
So start your engines, let the mud fly, as we ride rides and reach
for the sky. The sky truly is the limit for quality family- friendly
activities, fun, finds, fast thrills and food at our great hometown
Mesick is a small town, with a big heart. Come join us so we may
help stimulate your heart, bring back old remembrances or make new
lasting memories. Hope to see you here. Arrive early so you can
get out to find those tasty tidbits yourself or buy some to take
home from our local mushroom hunters.
