The fifth annual Garlic Fest will be stinkier than ever as it is moving to the Big Yellow Merville Hall.
The Sunday, Aug.7 event will be fun for the entire family, with everything from a farmyard kids’ zone, to garlic sellers, to garlic infused spirits and food tastings.
There will be more than 10 different varieties of garlic offered by farmers, and food vendors will vie for the most intriguing garlic concoction.
Outside, while you browse, buy and taste, you will be entertained by talented local musicians helping to get you into the summertime food festival mood. Inside the big hall you’ll find local beer, wine and spirit vendors, as well as chefs who will create savoury garlic gastronomic delights to suit every palate.
Doors open at noon and the festival runs to 4 p.m. The hall is on the corner of the Old Island Highway and Fenwick Road.
