mushroom festival

The return of Fun Gus is just one of the exciting signs that the Mushroom Festival in Kennett Square is at hand, kicking off Friday night with the annual parade.

Kennett Square and mushrooms are linked together so much that it would seem fitting if the Kennett High sports teams were nicknamed the Mushrooms instead of the Blue Demons. Kennett Square is even billed as “The Mushroom Capital of the World.”

Kennett Square and its surrounding area has  been one of the top mushroom growing areas in the nation for decades. Pennsylvania produces almost 75 per cent of all the mushrooms grown in America. More than 50 per cent of the state’s mushrooms come from southern Chester County.

The fungus known as the mushroom and the mushroom-growing industry in the area is celebrated by Kennett Square each year when it presents its eagerly-anticipated annual Mushroom Festival (various locations in Kennett Square and surrounding area, 610-925-3373, www.mushroomfestival.org).

This year, the Mushroom Festival, which is scheduled for September 12 and 13, is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a number of special events. State Street becomes “Mushroom Boulevard” for two days and hosts a street festival with over 200 vendors.

The festival will be held from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. on September 12 and from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on September 13.

Admission is $2 for anyone age 12 or older. Proceeds from the sale of the admission wristbands goes toward the Mushroom Festival’s grant program. Last year the Mushroom Festival gave $80,000 to 47 non-profit organizations.

The Mushroom Festival is a rain or shine event. In severe weather some events may be canceled or rescheduled. Updates, when possible, will be made to the website.

The festival officially runs on Saturday and Sunday but events actually get underway on September 11 with a “Community Parade,” which has a 6 p.m. kick-off at Willow and State streets, and an event that is billed as “Dining and Dancing in the Streets.” This year’s theme is “We Remember.”

The 2015 Old Fashioned Carnival, which takes place at 600 Broad Street, runs Friday from 6-10 p.m., Saturday from 3-10 p.m. and Sunday from 1-6 p.m.

The long list of festival activities includes “Amateur Mushroom APPETIZER Cook-Off,” children’s entertainment and street fair rides, an “Antique and Classic Car Show,” a “Mushroom Growers Exhibit” (including mushroom harvesting demonstrations), a “Culinary Tent,” a 5K “Mushroom Run” and two-mile “Mushroom Walk,” the “Cute-As-A-Button Baby Photo Contest,” the “Soup and Wine Fest,” a “Remote Control Air Show”, a “Mushroom Judging Contest” and the “Fried Mushroom Eating World Record Contest.”

Live music will be performed on September 12 by Angelee, Born Sisters, Angela Sheik, and Gretchen Emery and Dirty Boots. Performers schedule for September 13 are Andrew Lipke and The Azrael String Quartet, Hot Breakfast and Hell Saddle.

chadds ford days

American history and the Revolutionary War are front and center at Chadds Ford Days this weekend.

There are two things that you can count on to happen the weekend after Labor Day — the weather will be very hot and sunny and the Chadds Ford Historical Society will be hosting its annual event known as Chadds Ford Days (John Chads House, Route 100, Chadds Ford, 610-388-7376, www.chaddsfordhistory.org).

This year, the well-attended festival, which will be held on September 12 and 13 in the meadow behind the CFHS building on Route 100 in Chadds Ford, will feature an art show and a craft show with over 60 traditional artisans selling their wares. There will also be a variety of colonial craft demonstrations presented each day.

Festival attendees will be able to watch Revolutionary War re-enactments by The 2nd PA Regiment of the Continental Line, get a libation at a colonial tavern, watch a puppet show and take tours of the John Chads House and the Barns-Brinton House — both of which date back to the early 1700s.

The outdoor event, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, also features food booths presented by local restaurants, Colonial demonstrators, children’s activities, an antique car show and live musical entertainment.

There will be also be a full slate of live music both days featuring Hake and Jarema Duo, The Sermon, the Steve Liberace Band, McGraw & McLaughlin and Steppin Razor.

The annual Brandywine Festival of the Arts (North Park Drive, Wilmington, Delaware, 302-363-5955, www.brandywinearts.com) has been one of the most popular late-summer events in northern Delaware for a long, long time.

The 55th annual two-day staging of the arts-and-crafts festival is slated for September 12 and 13 at its usual location along the banks of the Brandywine River in Wilmington. Tickets are $5 for adults with children (under 10) admitted free.

This is the perfect weather for drinking beer — and also the perfect weather to stage a brewfest. Fortunately for all you beer lovers out there, there is a great local festival focusing on beer in this weekend –the Historic Odessa Brewfest (202 Main Street, Odessa, Delaware, 302-378-4119, http://www.odessabrewfest.com).

The Second Annual Historic Odessa Brewfest, which is being presented by the Historic Odessa Foundation and Cantwell’s Tavern, is slated for September 12 from 2-6 p.m.

There will be an array of tasty locally-produced food served at Cantwell’s, which is a farm-to-table gastropub. The cheese boutique Middletown’s Fromage will have plates of cheeses that will be paired with different styles of beer and wine.

More than 45 local and national breweries are participating, including Downingtown’s Victory Brewing Company, Oskar Blues Brewery, Twin Lakes Brewing Company, Dogfish Head Brewery, Brooklyn Brewery, Evil Genius Beer Company, Troegs Independent Craft Brewery, Wolaver’s Fine Organic Ales and Seattle’s Elysian Brewery.

Last year, Odessa Brewfest participants got to enjoy beer from New Belgium, a Colorado brewery only just now finally hitting the Philadelphia-area market. This year, Brewfest patrons will get an even rarer treat. The Odessa Brewfest will be one of the very first places in the state to make available beer from California’s legendary Firestone Walker.

Firestone Walker, brewed in Paso Robles, CA, makes award-winning ales in the classic English tradition using a unique linked-barrel fermentation system. Firestone Walker is a three-time Great American Beer Festival and four-time World Beer Cup award winner. 

The Odessa Brewfest has also announced that Coney Island Hard Root Beer will be at the festival in 2015. This new style of beer has swept the country and the event organizers say they are excited to have it as part of the line-up. 

Coming in at 5.8% ABV, hard root beer is a delicious new twist on an old favorite. Called the “next big thing in craft beer” by Fortune Magazine, hard root beer brings all the flavor of root beer, with a kick.

All attendees have access to food and merchandise vendors, live bands, sponsor tables, and more during the entire event. Doors open at noon for the VIP Tasting and the regular fest is slated to start at 2 p.m. All taps will close at 6 p.m. General admission tickets are $50.
