First Annual
Alabama Mushroom Festival

You wont want to miss this weekend long event of fungi fun! We have two primary goals for the Alabama Mushroom Festival: educate on the amazing world of mushrooms and collect data on the fungi of Alabama. We will have vendors selling products of all kinds, forays led by professionals and enthusiasts, various classes, presentations, and demonstrations, mushroom foods and more! We will also be coordinating fungi collection, identification and DNA sequencing to compile data on what fungi occur in Alabama. Check out the FAQ page to learn how you can help!
