Fungi Fest 2019
August 31, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm$5 – $20
What’s the difference between a mushroom and a toadstool? How many different varieties are there, and how can I tell which ones are edible? Why do they appear after rain, and how long do they stay around? Come to The Asheville Mushroom Club’s FungiFest at Warren Wilson College on Saturday, Aug. 31, and get answers to all the questions you ever had about mushrooms and the ones you never thought to ask. There will be educational displays, classes, guided mushroom walks in the college grounds, and vendors selling edible mushrooms, cultivation supplies, fungi-themed crafts & gifts, and more. Asheville Mushroom Club (AMC) members will be on hand to answer questions and will even try to identify any mushrooms you bring in. Admission starts at 9:30am. Entrance fees at the door (Bryson Building) will be: adults, $10; students & AMC members, $5; free for children 5 and under and Warren Wilson students. Classes run throughout the day and cost $15 for AMC members (membership will be verified at the door) and $20 for non-members, in addition to the entrance fee. Mushroom Walks will take place throughout the day and cost $10 for AMC members and $15 for non- members.
