Shroomfest 31!

The 31st Annual Mushroom Festival was celebrated last month in Telluride, CO. August 18-21 was a great time for shroomer enthusiasts to enjoy one another and celebrate all things fungal.

The Telluride Institute sponsored the event which explored the entire fungal world. Speakers such as Paul Stamets, Valerie Mojeiko, Gary Lincoff, Danny Newman, David Rose, and many more shared their knowledge of the complex species.

There were also events for people of all ages including forays, performances, hands-on workshops, movies, and local restaurants that offered specials on wild mushroom dishes. It was a fabulous time for everyone who came out to admire the fungal kingdom!
