The Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz presents the 39th annual Fungus Festival at Loudne Nelson Community Center in Downtown Santa Cruz.

FFSC mushroom experts will be available throughout the fair to identify the mushrooms you’ve found.

The habitat display area will present and display hundreds of mushroom species commonly found in the Santa Cruz/San Francisco/Monterey Bay area.
