Fun with Fungi at the Mushroom Festival

Kennett Square's Mushroom Festival

Kennett Square’s Mushroom Festival is set for Sept. 12-13.


Did you know the Mushroom Capital of the World is less than 15 miles from Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast?

Have some fun with fungi at Kennett Square’s 30th Annual Mushroom Festival the weekend after Labor Day, Sept. 11-13.

Kennett Square hosted the first Mushroom Festival in 1985 to celebrate its cash crop and raise scholarship funds for local high school students. Now the fun fungi festival stretches a mile and features 200 vendors, numerous exhibits, children’s entertainment and an attendance of more than 100,000.

A parade and dining in the streets kicks off the festival on Friday evening. Then enjoy the mushroom festivities from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Rain or shine.

Don’t forget to take home some of the freshest mushrooms you’ll ever taste.
