 TEQUILA DRESSED UP IN BLUE FOR TWO DAYS, to celebrate the II Tequila Mushroom Fest, on the 17th and 18th of August, in order to spread and celebrate the importance of wild mushrooms that grow as part of the natural wealth that the Tequila Volcano o"ers. It is a celebration of the di"erent varieties of wild mush- rooms present in the Tequila region, having the Lac- tarius indigo blue mushroom as a special guest.
Among scientific, cultural and gastronomic activi- ties, it is shared with the community and visitors, the great relevance of fungi for the development of the main ecosystem of the region: the Tequila Volcano.
!is event is part of the actions taken by Voices of Tequila to achieve the commitment between actors. We celebrate the bio-cultural heritage of the region through exhibitions, cooking classes, tastings, talks, collections on the volcano and music.
!rough this celebration, we want to raise aware- ness regarding the vulnerability and deterioration that the Tequila Volcano is su"ering. !is is part of one of the most important natural areas in the state that cur- rently does not have the necessary regulations for its adequate protection and conservation.
By connecting scientific and traditional knowl- edge, gastronomy and cultural experiences, we seek to create awareness among the community and visitors regarding the natural richness of the volcano.
!e II Tequila Mushroom Fest is possible thanks to the collaboration with the Department of Mycology of the University Center of Biological and Agricultural Sciences of the University of Guadalajara, where they have researched in the Tequila Volcano region for over 25 years.
