Introducing the very first year of the Kootenay Mushroom Festival, a fun and informative celebration of all things fungal!

This year we are holding the festival in and around beautiful Kaslo, BC and have a full day of events perfect for families, serious mycophiles, and newcomers alike!

We begin with a morning walk in the woods guided by a select group of local experts, afterwards reconvening with a discussion of our finds and then breaking for lunch. In the afternoon, participants can choose from a variety of sessions, with everything on the table, from mushroom medicine to needle felting to growing your own mushrooms.

This will be followed by an optional mushroom meal and social at the Bluebelle Bistro. Please join us as we connect with one another and celebrate Kootenay mushroom culture this Thanksgiving!

This all happens on October 8th from 9am to 6pm, meeting at Vimy park and the cost is $50. Check the schedule and register at
