Description

Dates
September 6-7, 2014

Overview

Mushroom lovers across the nation converge in historic Kennett Square each year on the weekend after Labor Day. They come to celebrate the humble fungi known as the mushroom at the Kennett Square Mushroom Festival, a two-day festival of food and family fun.

Expect to taste your way through a competitive line-up of soups and other mushroom dishes prepared by local restaurateurs on Sunday, and you won’t want to miss what the group of celebrity chefs and culinary arts students will be serving up throughout the festival.

But mouth-watering food is the just the start. Kids and adults alike will love the live entertainment, the mushroom farm tours and the Growers’ Exhibit, where the secrets of mushroom cultivation are revealed.

Come Prepared

The festival is free of charge, but there is a fee to park. Follow signs to designated parking areas and be prepared to take a shuttle bus into town. Expect congestion: The festival typically attracts more than 100,000 people.

Don’t Miss

Keep an eye out for the Mushroom Ice Cream – it tastes like Cream of Mushroom soup and it sells out every year.

Outsider’s Tip

The Mushroom Festival, featured on the Food Network’s All American Festival show, has been voted by Travelocity.com as one of the top 10 festivals in Pennsylvania, listing it as a “Local Secret, Big Find.”
