This is a unique but informative festival that happens annually in Telluride. It first began in 1981 after the Beth Israel Hospital hosted a conference in Aspen to educate about mushroom poisoning treatment and other diagnoses in the 1970s.
The all-mushroom festival has hosted many respected individuals from various fields. They’ve welcomed Nobel Prize laureates, doctors, scientists, writers, chemists, and other professionals.
Known locally as Shroomfest, the annual Telluride Mushroom Festival will happen from Thursday to Sunday on August 18th to 22nd, 2021 in Telluride. It discusses mushrooms both as a food and medicine.
The festival aims to educate the community and people participating in the event about mushrooms and what you can benefit from them. This is a family-friendly event so bring in your kids for some activities that they might enjoy.
