The Pacific Northwest Mushroom Festival celebrates local fungi through food, talks, cooking demonstrations, and plenty of entertainment. On the cooking stage, chefs show visitors how to incorporate mushrooms into a variety of recipes, while the mushroom and wine event pairs mushroom hors d'oeuvres with tastes from local wineries. Elsewhere, local merchants showcase their mushroom-related wares to the music of live bands, almost none of whom have gills. To take a more active part in the festivities, visitors can express their love of mushrooms and phosphorescence during the Grow in the Dark 5K or get their fill of fungi during the Shroom Feast.
