The Southern Vermont Garlic and Herb Festival once again claims the glory and distinction of raising the biggest stink in Vermont August 30th & 31st 2014 from 10 AM to 5 PM both Saturday and Sunday.

Join garlic-lovers from throughout the northeast as they come to sample food and crafts from 100 different vendors all made from - you guessed it - garlic and herbs! Everything from garlic ice cream to garlic jelly, pickled garlic, roasted garlic, garlic braids and, of course, plain garlic bulbs of every variety will be available for sampling and purchase, along with planting and braiding demonstrations as well as cooking demonstrations.

For aspiring gardeners, garlic growers, garlic-lovers or those simply looking for a fun way to spend a Vermont end-of-summer day, the event promises something for everyone. Some of the great children's activities this year will be face painting, and inflatable fun rides for kids.

Wander around the spacious lawns sampling garlic delicacies and enjoy the festivities. Relax at the Beer and Wine Garden under the tent listening to live music both days. In addition this year, there is a special smoking area near the beer tent.

FLY IN, due to our very close proximity to The William Morse State Airport, feel free to fly in and enjoy the festivities.

Admission* for the day is just $5.00 per person, a 2 day pass for $8, and children 12 and under are $1.00.

The Festival will be held on Saturday August 30th & Sunday August 31st 2014 10 till 5 both days. 1.5 miles west of the four corners in BENNINGTON VERMONT! Celebrate the end of summer and stock up on that most "stinky" of herbs on Labor Day weekend.

* unfortunately due to insurance concerns we are no longer able to allow dogs on site as we have in the past.
