This festival is part of the growing movements of sustainability, healthy cooking and legalization of all plant food and medicine. The public is calling for more local farms, organic foods, humanely raised meats, and natural medicine to combat our modern health epidemics. Our goal is to teach you all about the wild and wonderful world of mushrooms.
Memphis Mushroom Festival is a multi day transformational festival that occurs yearly at Meeman Shelby Forest State Park.
The event takes place on November 3rd, 4th, and 5th and you can camp at the park for the entire event or come for the day!
We take a lot of pride in what we provide. All the food and forays we offer are within our area, specifically highlighting foods and fungi that grow in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas. As well, most of our leaders and lecturers are from these areas - everything has a local connection.
Located just off the beaten path, the Memphis Mushroom Festival is worth the adventure to get there. Just bring yourself—we’ll handle the rest.
