41st Annual Telluride Mushroom Festival
2021 Festival Theme: Reconnecting
Now in its 41st year, the Telluride Mushroom Festival is unsurpassed in its quality and scope of offerings for mushroom-lovers. "After a year like 2020, all of us in the myco-community and beyond need to reconnect!" – so says festival director Dr. Britt Bunyard, Editor-in-Chief of Fungi magazine. The presentations this year, like the presenters themselves, are quite literally all over the map. Topics include wild and cultivated culinary and medicinal mushrooms; chemistry and clinical use of psychedelic mushrooms; ethnomycology, mycoremediation, living sustainably with mushrooms; plus, lots of basics for beginners. Don't miss this incredible opportunity to connect and learn!
John Michelotti of Catskill Fungi will be leading a Fungi101 Mushroom Walk, presenting on a topic TBA, co-leading the entheogenic gourde circle, volunteering as stage director for the poetry show, and preforming a new mushroom parody on stage.
