A trip report of the 2008 event by Michelle Mengel with numerous photos is available.

The Feria de Hongos takes place annually in Cuajimoloyas, Oaxaca, in July or August to celebrate and study the more than 100 varieties of mushrooms and medicinal plants that are found in the surrounding forests of the mountain village of Cuajimoloyas, Oaxaca.

"There was a good visitor turnout and many mushrooms. Participants enjoyed the forest mushroom walk and conferences on bromelias, mushrooms, rural tourism, sustainable eco-alebrijes, oil of the zapote mamey and organic coffee from the Chinantla and Sierra Norte medicinal plants. The Sunday mushroom lunch buffet was a special highlight this year." [posted by Gerhard on planeta.com]
