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 years later the Festival stretches a mile and features culinary events, growing exhibits, children’s entertainment, and 200 vendors with attendance calculated at up to 100,000 guests. The Mushroom Festival's Grant Program has given $700,000 in grants to local non-profits since 2000. In 2015, 47 organizations received $80,000 in grants from the Mushroom Festival.
Kennett Square, Pennsylvania has long been known as “The Mushroom Capital of the World,” with more mushroom growing operations concentrated in the Southern Chester County area than any other area in the United States. Over 65 percent of the mushrooms consumed in the United States are grown right here!
Thousands flocked to Kennett Square for the 30th Annual Mushroom Festival in 2015. Visitors from our town, the region, across the country and even around the world had a great time strolling the Street Fair and experiencing this annual Kennett Square event in the Mushroom Capital of the World. Plans are underway for another even bigger and better Mushroom Festival as we host our Annual event.
