What to expect at a Garlic Festival

demoThis is an outdoor event, and takes place rain or shine. We have been blessed with good weather almost every year.

There is a large variety of items for sampling and sale such as dips, dressings, sauces and salsas; fresh garlic bulbs, braids and wreaths in myriad varieties.

There are many different herbal products. Also present are various crafts- jewelry, woodwork, clothes and photography.

There is music on stage all day both days. See the events page for a list of the bands that will be performing.
