Telluride Mushroom Festival / Shroomfest 32
For over 30 years, the Telluride Mushroom Festival has tried to educate citizens, both visitor and local alike, about the many incredible aspects of the amazing world of mycology. Forays into the surrounding mountains, identification tables in Elks Park, talks and powerpoints at various local theaters, and the legendary Saturday parade have all been staple features.
The last few years Shroomfest has expanded to accommodate a number of simultaneous talks and workshops. Instead of one site for shows, we now have several—the Palm Theatre, the Wilkinson Public Library, the San Miguel County Meeting Room, as well as our free exhibits in Elks Park. We’ve established three tracks for those interested in particular areas of the fungal world more than others: Identification & Culinary, Cultivation and Remediation, Entheogens and Medicinal.
For the last six years Shroomfest has been a project of the Telluride Institute.
