The 2023 Southwest Funga Fest will be in the magical community of Velarde, New Mexico, halfway between Santa Fe and Taos. Southwest Funga Fest is an eco-conscious, educational, community-oriented, festival focused on mycology, citizen science, fungal preservation, ethical foraging, earth stewardship, microscopy, permaculture principles/ethics, the soil food web and natural farming.
We will start every day with best practices including yoga, qi gong, drumming and breathe work, and after full days of discovery, we will wind down with live music and other entertainment. All this with a concentration on healing, ancestral knowledge, art, and sharing.

We will also have a one of a kind Kids Village called the “SPORESOURCE” filled with activities for our youth.

Surrounded by thousands of acres of BLM land on a gentle stretch of the Rio Grande, we can’t wait to gather with community and share world class education for all ages to foster a healthier Mother

Earth for the next forever generations.
