I mean really, what is a festival without a food eating contest?! These guys came with empty stomachs to the 2016 Kennett Mushroom Festival, saddling up to a stuffed mushroom eating contest and the chance to earn some bragging rights. But there was, and always is, so much more at the annual Mushroom Festival. Food, apparel, art, coffee and smoothies, games, entertainment, you name it — the Kennett Mushroom Festival along State Street offered hours of enjoyment to the hungry and the bored.
They kicked off the festival weekend with a Mushroom Run and Fun Walk (results here), where 200 adults and children took off through the streets of Kennett Square bright and early on Saturday. The run was a joint effort of The Mushroom Festival and the Kennett Area Parks and Recreation Board.
