Mushroom Festival
Sep 10 @ 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM

The 37th Kennett Square Mushroom Festival is heading back to State Street in 2022, the Mushroom Festival Board announced today. The two-day event is a popular community experience—spanning nearly 40 years—and celebrating everything mushrooms and more, including Kennett Square, PA, the Mushroom Capital of the World, mushroom farms, and the community. The Festival will take place on State Street, September 10, (10am-7pm), and September 11 (10am-4pm).

“We are thrilled to be able to host this popular community event in the center of town,” said Gina Puoci, Mushroom Festival Board President. “It’s where the Festival first began, and it’s where we belong.”

The Festival was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID. Last year, while still facing some logistical challenges and uncertainty, the Festival was held, but in a different location in Kennett Square.

Gale Ferranto, Mushroom Festival Coordinated explained, “Our goal is to celebrate mushrooms and the community that supports the industry. There’s no better place to do that than in the center of the Mushroom Capital of the World.”

Fan favorites like the Amateur Mushroom Eating and Mushroom Cooking Contests will be back this year, along with other favorites like Mushroom Soup, Mushroom Cooking Demonstrations, the Mushroom Growers Tent, Painted Mushrooms, Kiddie Rides, Car Show, and more.

Mushrooms are on the Move. With their significant health benefits and variety of uses, they are topping trend lists from outlets like New York Times, and have been cited as a go-to ingredient this year from retailers like Whole Foods. From traditional dishes like Mushroom Soup to powdered in coffees and teas, jerky, dried snacks and more, Mushrooms will be on full display at this year’s Festival.

Follow the Mushroom Festival on Facebook (@themushroomfestival) for details as they become available.

The Mission of the Mushroom Festival is to promote the mushroom, educate consumers about the health benefits of mushrooms and to promote tourism in Southern Chester County, all while financially supporting local and regional charities through a grant process.
