I didn’t discover the Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, mushroom festival until 2010. Even then, I didn’t attend due to travel commitments that weekend. Who knew there was such a big event in the green rolling hills south of Philadelphia?

When my schedule finally allowed a visit, I attended with enthusiasm a true mushroom lover like myself would have.

I went to the mushroom soup competition, walked the streets poking my nose in most every booth, and had lunch at one of the food stands on the main drag. This is no small event. Around 100,000 visitors attended last year!

The mushroom festival takes up a whopping mile of the main drag, State Street, and offers an amazing assortment of mushroom products as well as booths hawking goods that have nothing to do with mushrooms.
