Telluride Mushroom Festival




The Telluride Mushroom Festival has been an annually recurring celebration of all things fungal the past 32 years in the high, summer-wet mountains of southwestern Colorado. Mushroom hunts, a mushroom display, mushroom cookery, mushroom talks and discussions, and a mushroom-costume parade through town are just some of the highlights of this annual 4 day mushroom festival.

This  year’s Telluride Mushroom Festival (2014) runs from August 16 to 19, with workshops before the official starting date.
