The Annual Mushroom Festival is a celebration of Kennett Square’s #1 Crop—the mushroom. The Street Fair extends about one mile thru town and boasts almost 250 craft and food vendors. Special events include the National Fried Mushroom Eating Championship, the Antique & Classic Car Show, and the Amateur Mushroom Cook-Off on Saturday and the Mushroom Run/Walk and the Soup & Wine Event on Sunday. Celebrity, regional, and local chefs give cooking demonstrations in the Culinary Tent and there is entertainment for the children, an old-fashioned carnival, live entertainment on the Community Stage, and a Growers’ exhibit where attendees can learn about the mushroom growing process.
