The fall is event season! Time for the Kennett Square Mushroom Festival!
I love mushrooms! I love them in my salads and on my pizza! How about that for life balance!
I like them stuffed and over my steak…and on my cheesesteaks!
Fried, grilled, sautéed or baked, it does not matter! I love mushrooms!
I even love the smell of them growing when I’m hanging out in Hockessin, or enjoying time with friends at the great spots in Kennett Square.
And that’s where I plan to be next Saturday September 10th and 11th. It’s the 37th Annual Kennett Square Mushroom Festival on State Street.
Kennett Square is the mushroom capital of the world and every September they celebrate (as they put it) THE FABULOUS FUNGI!
The event promises family fun including live music, kids events, a mushroom growers tent and even a mushroom eating contest.
If you go be sure to sample a variety of mushroom-centric foods; friend mushrooms, mushroom soup and many other mushroom masterpieces bound to make you go yummmm!
The Mushroom Festival has grown from a one-day, one-block local celebration to a nationally-recognized, two-day event that attracts many thousands of visitors to Kennett Square. With the help of many dedicated volunteers, the Festival has grown into one of the largest and most prestigious events in Pennsylvania.
In past years attendance at the festival has been close to 100,000 visitors over the 2 days of the event. The street fair is a mile-long event through the Borough of Kennett Square.
If you go, The 2022 Kennett Square Mushroom Festival is Saturday September 10th from 10am to 7pm. And on Sunday September 11 from 10am to 4pm.
All events are on State Street in Kennett Square, Chester County, PA.
