Event Overview:

World’s Greatest Summer Food Festival

The Gilroy Garlic Festival is “Summer’s Ultimate Food Fair” - three full days of incredible food, beverages, arts & crafts, live entertainment, and cooking competitions. Founded in 1979, this event is hosted by thousands of community volunteers who have raised millions of dollars for local schools, charities, and non-profit organizations.

The heart of the Garlic Festival is Gourmet Alley, the gigantic outdoor kitchen where the world-famous “Pyro Chefs” put on a spectacular flame-up show while preparing garlic-laced calamari and scampi in huge iron skillets. Other Festival favorites include pepper steak sandwiches, pasta con pesto, fried calamari, and sausage sandwiches, as well as Gilroy garlic fries and garlic bread. And don’t forget the only-in-Gilroy garlic ice cream!

You’ll also find live entertainment on three stages, cooking contests and demonstrations, arts & crafts, wine tasting, and a fun Children’s Area too.

Advance tickets will be available online in June. Hope to see you here July 29-31, 2016!
