To celebrate the 2022 monsoon and all the wonders it brings, we have teamed up with the Strawberry Lodge to offer a mushroom-inspired feast with music, friends, and a fungi friendly meal in the fruity heart of the forest!
Join us to celebrate the return of the annual monsoon and support our local wildfire impacted communities with a feast at the Strawberry Lodge in Strawberry, AZ on the evening of Saturday, August 6, 2022 at 6pm.
Chef and Owner Ricky Simone of the Strawberry Lodge will be making a delicious mushroom inspired buffet-style meal with mushroom smothered pasta and salad, mushrooms, and vegetables. There will be varied dishes at the buffet to accommodate those with dietary restrictions.
Each registration includes one meal for $35.00 per person. There is also an option to register and donate $20 to support local wildfire risk reduction efforts in the local community. Your registration will cover food and one non-alcoholic drink. Additional drinks will be available for cash at the event. No outside alcohol allowed at the event to comply with state law.
