The 35th Annual Telluride Mushroom Festival
"THE FUTURE OF FUNGI"
Thursday, August 13, 2015, through Sunday August 16, 2015.
Festival Speakers, Schedule, and Programming: http://www.telluridemushroomfest.org/2015-schedule.html
The theme of this year’s Telluride Mushroom Festival is “The Future of Fungi”. The goal of the festival is to have every single attendee fully committed to the idea that mushrooms have the potential to revolutionize our relationship with the world and ourselves. Workshops, lectures, facilitated group discussion and panels will help bring this topic into focus through the four different festival tracts: culinary, mycoremediation (i.e. combatting environmental issues with mushrooms), taxonomy/general, and entheogen (i.e. “magic mushrooms”).
In addition to a robust lineup of renowned experts and leaders in the field of mycology, the Telluride Mushroom Festival hosts hands-on workshops, a number of forays throughout the festival, a festive and creative mushroom cook-off and a parade led by the ‘Shroompa’ Art Goodtimes.
A select number of VIP Patron Passes are available which include VIP access and seating at all events, a complimentary VIP Gourmet Dinner with special guests & presenters, a VIP cooking class, signed books and other exclusive mushroom gifts and events.
The festival is sponsored by the Telluride Institute, an innovative non-profit organization that fosters the transition to a sustainable world.
