What’s that delicious smell? It’s probably coming all the way from Kennett Square, the “mushroom capital of the world,” during the area’s annual Mushroom Festival. The three-day event begins on Sept. 9 with a community parade and old-fashioned carnival. (Read our September story about this thriving mushroom industry here.)
The mission of the festival is to promote the mushroom, educate consumers about the health benefits of mushrooms and to promote tourism in Southern Chester County, all while financially supporting local and regional charities through a grant process.
Highlights will include:
Admission is $3 per person (ages 12 and up).
GPS directions: 101 South Union St., Kennett Square, Pa.
