Mushroom & Wine Festival

The Mushroom & Wine Festival at Purgatory Resort presented by Vectra Bank has become a “wildly” popular event on Durango’s summer calendar.  The forested area around the Resort is known far and wide for having an abundance of wildVectra_Color_Regis_HighResmushrooms.  Our Mushroom & Wine Festival celebrates this abundance with guided mushroom hunts and a culinary showcase of Durango’s finest restaurants.

Our goal is to partner with the finest restaurants in Durango to make this a truly exceptional experience for our guests.
