Local artist Carol Little created the Mushroom Festival’s 30th Anniversary design. Filled with mushrooms, and tiny details, this design will be a Festival favorite.
T-Shirts, posters, and tote bags will be available at the Mushroom Festival’s Souvenir Booth at the corner of Broad and State Streets during the Festival or will be on sale at The Mushroom Cap (114 W. State Street, KSQ) before and after September 12 and 13.
