    The Cultural Association of Sinies and the Mushroom Enthusiasts’ Association of Corfu, in collaboration with the Mushroom Enthusiasts’ Association of Greece, are jointly organizing, for the 6th consecutive year, a Mushroom Festival in Sinies (Agia Barbara – Porta Sinion) on Saturday, October 21, 2023. The festival will include excursions for mushroom collection, truffle hunting with truffle dogs, lectures on mushrooms and environmental protection, an exhibition of paintings and crafts with a mushroom and nature theme from local elementary schools and kindergartens.
