40th Annual Gilroy Garlic Festival @ Christmas Hill Park

40th Annual Gilroy Garlic Festival @ Christmas Hill Park

Celebrating 40 Years of Family Fun!

Known as the world’s greatest summer food festival, the Gilroy Garlic Festival is held each year on the last full weekend of July. The 40th annual Gilroy Garlic Festival will be held on July 27, 28, and 29, 2018 at Christmas Hill Park in Gilroy, California.

Thousands of visitors come every year to enjoy three full days of great garlicky food, live music, arts and crafts, cooking competitions, and family fun. And of course they consume lots and lots of garlic while they’re here—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 hundreds of other volunteers prepare longtime favorites like pepper steak sandwiches, sausage sandwiches, pasta con pesto, stuffed mushrooms, garlic bread, and garlic fries.

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

Discount tickets are available online and at Raley’s, Nob Hill, and Bel Air Foods stores.
