The official app for Kennett Square's Mushroom Festival held annually the first weekend after Labor Day. The app features schedules, maps, info on specific mushrooms, polls, coupons, food vendors, and much more!
A small group of mushroom enthusiasts decided to have a festival to celebrate Kennett Square’s number one cash crop with the hope of raising funds to give as scholarships to local high school students. In 1986 that became a reality as Kennett Square hosted its first Mushroom Festival. It was a one day affair and just one block long. Thirty-two years later the Festival stretches a mile and features culinary events, growing exhibits, children’s entertainment, and 250 vendors with attendance calculated at up to 100,000 guests. The Mushroom Festival’s Grant Program has given over $1,000,000 in grants to local non-profits since 2000.
