Celebrate the passion for this exalted bulb with the faithful throngs who make their annual pilgrimage to the NW Garlic Festival which is held each June in the seaside community of Ocean Park, located on the Long Beach Peninsula. This Garlic Olympics of Gastronomy is not held for the region’s Garlic growing ability. This NW Festival was born out of love of great, Garlic laden cuisine!

This year, the festival will be held on Saturday and Sunday, June 16 and 17. Hours are 10:00am – 5:00pm on Saturday and 10:00am – 4:00pm on Sunday. Admission is FREE!

Specialty food and craft vendors will offer up this supernatural powered herb, prepared and put to use in every imaginable way including some ways that go beyond. Where else could indulgence be so healthy? Don’t miss the succulent GARLIC oysters or GARLIC smothered sausages paired with a GARLIC jam. For desert decadent chocolate covered GARLIC or some GARLIC herbs and cheese?

Be sure to stop by to find the perfect match for your GARLIC meal.

GARLIC decor is the hottest fashion trend for home and garden, and you can find it at the festival! GARLIC bird houses and wind chimes, GARLIC pottery and art. Personal items such as hand made soaps of GARLIC and rosemary are particularly popular. Jewelry, hats and clothing laden with GARLIC abound.

Abandon your mouthwash for a weekend and head for the coast. This is a great family event. You’ll be healthier and happier for it. Remember, it is chic to reek (of GARLIC that is)!
