Annual Wild Mushroom Show

Sponsored by the Puget Sound Mycological Society

PSMS Annual Wild Mushroom Show

Our Wild Mushroom Show is one of the largest and most complete exhibits of mushrooms in the United States. Over 200 varieties of wild mushrooms will be displayed, identified, and classified as edible, poisonous, or valueless as food.

Visitors are welcome to bring in mushrooms from your garden or walks for our experts to identify. Be sure to collect the entire mushroom, including underground parts.

Exhibits will include something for all of the senses: A feel and smell display can be experienced after the slide show lecture and finished off by a delicious tasting of mushrooms prepared by some of Seattle's finest chefs. There are photography displays as well as a great selection of items for sale like mushroom field guides, cookbooks, t-shirts, and scientific materials for the serious mycologist. Visitors can discover facts about PSMS and obtain information about classes, field trips and other opportunities.
