The great garlic granddaddy of all food festivals

The Gilroy Garlic Festival is known around the world as the “Ultimate Summer Food Fair.” Visitors enjoy three days of incredible food, beverages, arts and crafts, and live entertainment…all while consuming lots and lots of garlic (about 2 tons every year).


The heart of the Festival is Gourmet Alley, where the famous “Pyro Chefs” cook up sizzling scampi and calamari while other behind-the-scenes volunteers prepare longtime favorites like peppersteak sandwiches, pasta con pesto, and stuffed mushrooms, and garlic bread.


Festival visitors enjoy live entertainment on three stages, plus celebrity chef demonstrations and the Great Garlic Cook-Off. There are also a wide range of other food booths, beer and wine tasting, arts & crafts, and a fun children’s area.
