Wild Rivers Mushroom Festival

The Wild Rivers Mushroom Festival happens along Oregon’s Wild Rivers Coast during the first weekend of November every year. That means that on November 2nd and 3rd (Saturday & Sunday), Brookings, Oregon will be transformed into a mushroom lover’s paradise for the very popular late Fall festival.

The festival happens each day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and promises lots of different ways to celebrate the fascinating world of wild fungi. Scheduled to fit between two other regional mushroom events – the popular Yachats Mushroom Festival in October and the large Humboldt Mushroom Fair on the Sunday before Thanksgiving – the Wild Rivers Mushroom Festival plans to take over the two-story Chetco Activity Center in downtown Brookings and fill it with all sorts of mushroom activities: mushroom workshops, mushroom cooking, mushroom identifying, mushroom slideshows, mushroom art, mushroom food, mushroom medicine, mushroom clothing, mushroom compost, mushroom beer…and – of course – wild mushrooms!
