    Annual Fungus Fair: A Celebration of Wild Mushrooms
    Mycological Society of San Francisco

    2022 Fungus Fair ArtWhen the 2023 Fungus Fair occurs, it will include the latest collection of expertly identified fungi collected in various locations in the Bay Area. These annual collections constitute a 50-year record of the early winter fungal diversity in our area. This historical information may become an important contribution to science as climate change affects our local ecosystems.

    The campus transit stop is next to the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture department.
    Park is free and abundant.
    County Connection buses go directly from Pleasant Hill BART station to the campus.
    Campus information, with downloadable campus map (PDF)
    Tickets are on sale! Through EventBrite

    Hands-on activities at the Fungus Fair include crafts, mushroom dyes, and do-it-yourself mushroom growing kits.
    We have many educational tables on varied subjects such as:
    - Identification table - bring your specimens to find out what you found!
    - medicinal mushrooms
    - myco-remediation
    - cultivation
    - ecology
    - lichens
    - psychoactive fungi
    - toxicology

    - microscopes and spore prints

    There will be a naturalistic woodland display and tables with more than 300 identified species of locally collected fungi.

    The Fair provides information on the uses and abuses of fungi, with displays and exhibits on ecology, toxicology, and cultivation. Arrays of identification tables display locally collected mushrooms. Campsite gourmands learn how to serve up the safe and scrumptious species through identification tutorials, and sales of recipe books, and fresh edibles.
