The Estill Arts Council sponsors displays, hands-on activities, demonstrations, and narrative and foodway stages at the annual Mountain Mushroom Festival.
The Mountain 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.
