Celebrate Spring with the Mushroom Festival

 

Spring signals the arrival of morel mushrooms — as well as the arrival of thousands of people coming to Richmond for the Mushroom Festival! You may not traipse the woods for the prized treats, but you will want to be a part of three days of fun on May 4, 5, and 6, around our downtown square.

2017 will be the 37th year for an event that began as a sidewalk sale, but grew to an annual highlight for citizens and visitors alike. Over 200 vendors of food, crafts, give-aways, products, and services will line the streets, while the grandstand will feature great talents and competitions.

Of course, the Mushroom Festival Parade will be a thrill for the entries as well as the many that line the parade route on Saturday. Close by will be the carnival with rides for “kids” of all ages.
