It's a time to let the worries of the week pass you by as you enjoy our educational program, our bands and experience the joy of being part of a community of like-minded people. Our weekend ticket holders have the opportunity to camp and socialize with our mushroom community, attend interesting workshops, go on mushroom walks with experts in their fields, experience good food, creative vendors and SO much more!! Day passes are available. Book early! A fun-filled weekend around mushroom education awaits YOU! Most out-of-town attendees choose to camp at our 14-acre location where our 2nd annual MAGIC MUSHROOM MUSIC JAM aka MMMJ will take place Saturday afternoon/night, but there are also a variety of lodging options available in the area through AirB&B; plus we're only 13 miles away from Rome & Cedartown.
