This year's activities and resources will be offered online. The event will not be held in person. Instead there will be eight hours of mushroom-centric programming streamed to viewers, including presentations from leading experts in the field of mycology, mushroom cooking demos, mushroom forays, live Q&A with experts, music, an iNaturalist Mycolblitz, and so much more — all for free!
This annual festival typically features several hundred species of local fungi, collected throughout Western Oregon. It is the largest mushroom display on the West Coast. The Mushroom Festival is also Mount Pisgah Arboretum's biggest fundraising event of the year, with proceeds going toward native habitat stewardship and environmental education.
