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.
