Fun fact: Chester County produces over 60% of the nation’s mushroom crop and the town of Kennett Square is the self- proclaimed “Mushroom Capital of the World.” For over 34 years Kennett Square has hosted a joyous Mushroom Festival, which has been voted one of the 10 best festivals in Pennsylvania; it takes place each September on the weekend after Labor Day.  Enjoy food, vendors, music, rides, and entertainment along the tree-lined streets.  Visit for Mushroom Festival or anytime as the town is filled with unique shops, galleries, cafes, and gourmet restaurants featuring the mighty mushroom in a myriad of preparations!
