Memphis Mushroom Festival

We are creating a community of open-minded and progressive individuals to camp together at Shelby Forest Park from May 26-30, 2022.

The Memphis Mushroom Festival (MMF) offers inspiring speakers, educated mycologists, workshops, local farms, unbelievable food from talented chefs, guided forays through the forest, live music & DJs, yoga, dancing and more. Plus, an entire 13,000 acre forest to explore!

We take a lot of pride in what we provide. All the food and forays we offer are within our area, specifically highlighting foods and fungi that grow in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas. Most of our leaders and lecturers are from these areas as well – everything has a local connection.

Get creative and feel free to be your weird, wild wonderful self.   You can wear costumes and deck out your campsite for a chance to win the Best Theme Camp Award! Brings things to share, trade, or barter. Instruments, ceremonies, light installations, hoops, fire are all welcome. Bring your ideas!

This is a family-friendly event but be aware that it covers several acres and will involve some adventure and endurance.

Our lecture topics will include: Mycology, Organic Horticulture, Vegetarian Culture, Psychedelic Medicine, Current Legal Status of Plant Medicine, All About CBD, Hydroponic Gardening, Meditation & Mindfulness, Natural Alternatives to Carcinogenic Products, Cooking with Wild Foods, Superfoods, Plants as Medicine, Inoculating logs with Mushroom Spores, Home Grown Mushrooms, Basic Green Thumbery, Nature Miracles, Nutrition and Cooking, Composting with Mushroom Spores, Innovative Uses of Mycelium, Fungus as Medicine…

We will also have live music nightly, interactive demonstrations, forays, chef’s food tastings, dancing, art, DJ’s, and more…join us!

MMF is part of the growing movements of sustainability, healthy cooking and legalization of all plant food and medicine. The public is calling for more local farms, organic foods, humanely raised meats, and natural medicine to combat our modern health epidemics.
Our goal is to teach you all about the wild and wonderful world of mushrooms with lectures, classes, cooking demos, nature forays and more.

The event is finished.
