Michigan is getting a new psychedelic shroom fest, and it’s coming soon. The University of Michigan has approved the festival organizers’ request to host the annual Entheofest on the university’s Central Campus Diag off State Street. The even is slated to take place from 1:11 p.m. to 4:20 p.m. this Sunday (Sept. 18), according to university officials.

Entheofest is being billed as a celebration of entheogenic plants and fungi, such as psychedelic mushrooms. The event is set to happen in the same outdoor space where Ann Arbor’s annual Hash Bash marijuana takes place.

Entheofest honors the anniversary of Ann Arbor’s decision in September 2019 to make entheogenic plants and fungi the city’s lowest law-enforcement priority, which for all practical purposes decriminalized it.

While this event celebrates psychedelic shrooms, organizers request ask that people not consume psychedelics at the event. Also, no vendors will be selling items at the event.
