The Mushroom Festival is an outdoor street festival that runs about one mile through the Borough of Kennett Square, up and down the main streets.
A large section of the Parking Garage at the corner of Linden and N. Union Street is reserved for handicapped parking. To access this facility use the Route 82 South exits off Route 1. At the start of the street closure turn left onto Linden Street. The entrance to the Parking Garage is halfway up the block on the right. (Donation: $5) By parking in this garage, you will have easy access to the center of the Mushroom Festival. Exit the Parking Garage and use the Genesis Walkway to get to the action.
New for 2018: Handicapped parking near the West Entrance at the First Baptist Church of Kennett Square (All day Saturday and after 1 pm on Sunday). Take Route 82 South, turn right on Linden Street, turn left on Garfield. Parking lot is on the left. (Donation: $5). This parking lot is closest to Fungus Land and children’s activities.
For families planning on using the Satellite Parking lots instead of the Parking Garage, you may drop of/pick-up elderly and/or handicapped individuals at the East Entrance to the Festival and then proceed to the Exelon lot for parking.
From Route 1 South: Follow the Festival Parking signs but continue into the Borough instead of turning at Exelon.
From Route 1 North: Follow the Festival Parking signs, but do not turn off Cypress Street. Continue to Walnut Street, turn left, and left again at State Street and continue straight to the East Entrance.
From Route 82 North: Do not park at the Kennett High School, continue north on Route 82. Turn right at Cypress Street and follow the Route 1 North directions from there.
