Festivarians for mushrooms? You can be one, too.


So you know about the Telluride Bluegrass festival (really, who doesn't) and you know about Telluride Blues & Brews. You're pretty up-to-date on the Telluride Film Festival and the Telluride Wine Festival. Telluride Jazz Festival, Telluride Yoga Festival, Mountainfilm...all festivals that bring in a heafty crowd. With the amount of summer festivals running in the double digits, it can be easy to skim over some of the lesser-known festivals that the Box Canyon has to the Mushroom Festival.

No, it's not new. The Mushroom Festival (Telluride Shroomfest) will be celebrating its 31st year in existence August 18-21st and is run by long-time Telluride resident Art Goodtimes.

During Shroomfest fungophiles from around the world gather to participate in forays, lectures, dining identification and the mushroom parade in Telluride's mushroom-rich surroundings. Attendees pick, discuss and eat during an information-filled weekend.
