Welcome to Maine Fungi Fest
"All Things Fungi, Plant Based Healing & Evolving Consciousness"
We are thrilled to announce that the Maine Fungi Fest is coming to you in 2024! Join us for an experience that celebrates the incredible world of all things fungi, plant-based healing, and evolving consciousness. Stay tuned for more details!
We are excited about our new Project Partner this year - PERMATOURS, who will be bringing their skills and enthusiasm to our organizing
Permatours is a decentralized non-profit that facilitates learn-by-doing events centered around growing food, natural construction, and community building. As a community hub, Permatours works with a robust network of volunteers, educators and land-based projects and communities. The Permatours network is united by a shared commitment to advancing food sovereignty, housing justice, and environmental stewardship.
We are excited to have them as a production, media, & marketing partner this year, with their production focus being AREA B - the portion of the event that will be free and open to the public.
AREA B will include live visual & performing artists, dance & jam bands, healing arts & wellness offerings, holistic practitioners, community art piece creation, circus arts, spoken word, vendors, & more! There will also be a Permatours Tea Lounge, a sound healing & body work space, and a film screening space.
More details coming soon!
All proceeds from this event are put towards the work of the Maine Consciousness, Healing and Living Medicine Project - M.C.H.L.M.P.
Maine Fungi Fest
In 2021 the Maine Consciousness, Healing, and Living Medicine Project was founded by Jonathan Leavitt and Dustin Sulak, DO with the simple intention of expanding the discussion on psychedelics and consciousness here in Maine.
In 2022 came the first annual Maine Fungi Fest, where folks interested in "All Things Fungi, Plant Based Medicine, and Evolving Consciousness" could come together to learn, teach, inspire, network, and create around these themes.The first year was a one day event held at the Portland Expo Center.
In 2023 the event was expanded and relocated to the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland providing better accommodations for 2.5 days of workshops, speakers, demonstrations, meals, lodging, and creative exchanges.
