Fungus Fair 2019 - Program Schedule

The Fungus Fair has two main speaking venues: the main room (Room 3) is where you'll find our headliners and cooking demonstrations. Entry passes to the main room will be available outside the room 30 minutes prior to the scheduled presentation.

A smaller lecture room (Room 1) down the hall has informative and educational talks about mushrooms, given by local, knowledgeable mycologists. The schedule for these rooms is listed below.

Visit the Kid's Room (Room 7) mushroom activities such as clay sculpture, water colors, face painting, and making mushroom dyed fabric. Join us Saturday and Sunday 10:00 – 4:00.

You can also ask questions about mushrooms you have brought to the fair in the main auditorium at the mushroom identification table, staffed by our best identification experts.
