YACHATS VILLAGE MUSHROOM FEST
The central Oregon coast town of Yachats is inviting all fun-guys and fun-gals to its 19th annual Village Mushroom Fest. The festival opens Friday night, October 19th, with a Fun-guys Welcome Bash, then offers a full weekend of cultivated culinary and wild forest mushrooms dishes, culinary markets, and an extraordinary opportunity to learn about mushrooms.
An impressive team of educators joins this festival annually to provide a variety of talks, workshops, guided walks, demonstrations, and book signings, and a large display of mushrooms staffed by 3 mycological societies.
You’ll also find indoor and outdoor markets featuring fresh & dried, wild, and exotic cultivated culinary mushrooms, as well as mushroom tools, books, and themed items at village shops and galleries.
A mushroom focussed citizen science Bioblitz is scheduled on Saturday at Cape Perpetua. This festival is sponsored by the Yachats Area Chamber of Commerce. For the full weekend’s schedule, visit the events page of the Yachats chamber’s website, yachats.org. FMI email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 541-547-3530.
