The Estill Arts Council sponsors displays, hands-on activities, demonstrations, and narrative and foodway stages at the annual Mountain Mushroom Festival.
Mushroom Festival is a celebration of the Appalachian culture: the morel
mushroom, Kentucky agate (state rock of Kentucky), arts and crafts, Daniel
Boone National Forest, Kentucky River, and mountains. The festival's mission is
to share the cultural heritage and traditions of our community and support area
groups (mushroom hunters, agate hunters, local crafters, artisans, and civic
organizations) and businesses to foster community pride and stimulate economic
development. A local volunteer committee partners with the community to present
a variety of activities and provide educational opportunities. The festival
provides a weekend of free activities and entertainment for everyone.
