Mushroom lovers across the nation will converge once again in historic Kennett Square for the annual Kennett Square Mushroom Festival, September 9-11.
For the 26th year running, the festival celebrates everything and anything mushroom. Why Kennett Square? It’s the “Mushroom Capital of the World.” The Chester County town grows an incredible 65% of the nation’s mushroom crop. There’s no other region in the entire world that grows as many mushrooms in a concentrated area.
We’ll be posting an in-depth guide to all things Mushroom Festival soon — schedule of events, how to get there, where to park and more — so stay tuned.
But for now, check out a video below of Kennett Square mushroom mavens, everyone from the Talula’s Table chef explaining how he makes his mushroom soup, to Kathi Lafferty of The Mushroom Cap shop.
