The last time we were able to attend the Mustard festival was in 2013. The festival always begins with the National Mustard Museum‘s Curator Barry Levenson kicks off the event with mustard songs and thanking the many sponsors.
Here are the words to the songs, audience participation highly encouraged!
The music is played by the Madison Accordion Band, dubbed the POUPON U Accordion Band during the festival.
The Duchess of Mustard is the star of the show! Everyone wanted pictures with her. She makes her own special hats, quite the talent! She can also yodel and did so for the growing audience.
After the opening ceremony we mingled with the crowd and took in the sights.
Get your picture with the French’s Mustard bottle or the Culver’s mascot Scoopie! We posed with Scoopie in 2013, not this year.
Culver’s also had a mustard custard made special just for this festival.
The Weinermobile was also there for selfies, since Oscar Mayer provided the hot dogs for sale.
Love the beer mug hats this couple is wearing.
Of course we had to stop inside the mustard Museum itself and look at the mustards on display. Very impressive!
The museum sells about 400 mustards and ALL are available for tasting before buying. How else would you know if you like it!
There was even a movie theater downstairs showing mustard videos.
After the museum I stopped by the souvenir tent. Even after the event, you can still pick up many of these items in the museum.
Enjoy the music entertainment at the festival, the Madison Accordion band and the Red Hot Horn Dawgs.
Lots of fun games too for both kids and adults. Feed the Curator is tossing mustard packets into the mouth of Barry Levenson and win a bottle of mustard!
Another great day at the National Mustard Day festival.
