The first annual Sicamous & Shuswap Lake Wild Mushroom & Food Festival was held in beautiful Sicamous, B.C. in 2005.
Participants enjoyed identifying and picking wild mushrooms, watching evening presentations, and attending workshops.
Join us, September 18, 19, & 20, 2015.
At the Red Barn in Sicamous, British Columbia.

beautiful British Columbia,

ATTENTION ARTISTS! Please submit by July 1, 2015.
The Fungi Festival is planning to print new t-shirts for our 2015 festival in September BUT we are looking for a great design or artwork to feature. Our hope: A t-shirt design that will SELL and includes the website address.
All kinds of people attend our festival, with many traveling to Sicamous from all over North America. We are an adult-oriented event but have visitors that range from young adults to the elderly.
Our festival is also one of very few mushroom events that offers more than education and guided mushroom hunting tours. We also offer delicious chef-crafted meals utilizing fresh wild mushrooms and cooking classes. (*It is possible we may also be interested in artwork that could be printed on aprons). And we have a lively festival atmosphere with local music and a beer garden.
There are a few other characteristics to mention that are unique to our festival:
The choice mushrooms to feature include pine mushrooms, lobster mushrooms, and chanterelles. Others of lesser interest would include shaggy manes, liberty caps, boletus, and red-belted conk / polypore.
Our primary interest is a new t-shirt design. We’ll consider all designs, from a simple re-vamp of our logo to an intricate piece of artwork.
New for 2015
