It’s time again to celebrate the wild edible treats of the Cowichan Valley the annual Salmon and Mushroom Festival at Lake Cowichan.
Held over two days — Sept. 26-27 — from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Centennial Hall (next to the Cowichan Lake Sport Arena), this event draws an interested group of potential foragers from all across Vancouver Island.
There will be a market of local arts and crafts, baked goods, and a variety of local mushrooms.
Festival events include mushroom identification, cooking demonstrations, mushroom slide show, and Saturday field trips (onsite registration required).
Admission to the festival is only $2 per person and children get in free.
