Gilroy Garlic Festival - July 29-30

Gilroy Garlic Festival

July 29 - 31st
10am - 7pm
Christmas Hill Park
Gilroy CA

It's that time of year again! The Gilroy Garlic festival is back on in Gilroy California and it's bigger and better than ever. Not only will there be the newest innovations in culinary uses of Garlic, but there will be the same old standbys, entertainment, cook-offs, Garlic pageant shows, and so much more. The smell alone would normally be enough to make you want to come and hang out in Gilroy, but the more popular the festival becomes the bigger it gets every year. Our only advice besides eating everything you can get your hands on, and having an ample supply of mints, is to get there early!
