It has been an annual tradition in our family to visit the Mushroom Festival at the Mount Pisgah Arboretum. https://

This is a one day event where the local Mycological Society shows off hundreds of species of local mushrooms. There is also live music, an apple cider press, and a scarecrow contest! We love picking out a treat from the local food vendors and going for a walk down by the river. There is so much fall flavor to enjoy here whether it be the changing leaves, the crisp air, or the fresh cider there is something for everyone here! Don’t forget about the local farmers on your way home! This year we picked out a pumpkin and some squash just down the road from the festival. When we got home we carved a pumpkin and baked a squash. In my opinion there is no better fall experience than this!
