Telluride Mushroom Festival

TellFest Ad Totem Poem imageIt’s almost time for the 30th Annual Telluride Mushroom Festival!

Always my favorite date on the mushroom calendar. The event takes place in the gorgeous town of Telluride, Colorado–nestled in a box canyon high (9,500 feet high) in the beautiful mountains of the southwest corner of Colorado. This year many are planning shroom-reunions to commemorate 30 years of this famous event. Paul Stamets will speak and is sure to draw a crowd. As will Gary Lincoff, the annual Master of Cermonies leading mushroom identificaton forays. Many other famous lecturers from the mushroom world also will be featured, including several Fungi magazine writers (David Rose, Daniel Winkler, Larry Evans, Elinoar Shavit, Britt Bunyard). There will be cooking and cultivation demos. And oh so many mushrooms. Plus the greatest atmosphere for the greatest mushroom event on the planet. Mark your calendars and plan to attend — last weekend in August.
