Due to the abundance of wild mushrooms around the forested area near the Purgatory Resort, the Mushroom and Wine Festival was created. It has since become one of Durango’s most notable summer events.
This festival is all about showcasing mushrooms and pairing wine via the culinary artistry of some of Durango’s finest restaurants. The two-day event will be divided into parts and tickets for each part can be bought separately. Festivities will happen from Friday to Monday, August 18th through the 21st, 2023 at the Purgatory Resort in Durango.
There are two main events, starting with a five-course dinner on Friday night is accompanied by wine pairings at Purgy’s. On Monday, there will be a guided mushroom tour to explore the forest and identify different types of mushrooms. Wine and snacks will also be provided.
