Telluride Mushroom Festival
36th Annual 2016 Telluride Mushroom Festival
August 18th- August 21st, 2016
It’s a bit early to have information about the 2016 Telluride Mushroom Festival, but it’s not too early to book lodging. Many veteran festivarians book their condos and hotel rooms a year in advance and the town of Telluride is mostly sold out six months before the festival! Come back later for more information on this festival.

The festival is a celebration of all things fungal -- connoisseurs find themselves in good company amongst enthusiasts, experts, and scientists.
