The SDMS had its first (and very successful) Fungus Fair on February 01, 1998 in Balboa Park. It was free to the public, and over 800 attended! There were display tables with specimens of local fungi, mushroom photos, etc.
The next Fungus Fair will be on February 19, 2017 at the Casa Del Prado, Room 101 from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm.
