 Minnesota garlic growers will have the first of their fresh 2014 gourmet garlic crop at the festival, and it can keep in your kitchen for up to a year! There are over 100 varieties of the country’s finest garlic grown here, all planted in October, harvested in July, and cured to perfection just in time for the festival. Other than the great taste, it is well documented that garlic is one of the healthiest foods you can eat.

The Garlic Festival offers a unique culinary experience with a cadre of renowned Minnesota chefs converging at the festival cafe, “The Gre

at ‘Scape“, and a sumptuous selection of celebrity chefs will present cooking demonstrations on the main stage throughout the day, all under the direction of the our Maven of Mmmmm, Mary Jane Miller. Check back here in the summer to get the full roster.

We’ll continue our tradition of unique entertainment, with festival favorites returning, plus some new acts. There are plenty of activities for the kids, including the popular kite flying attraction, the Peculiar Pragmatic Promenade, and old-style country picnic games.

MN Garlic Festival is a ZERO WASTE event! We make a concerted effort to produce no trash – if you can’t take it home, it’s recycled, re-used or composted.

Come to farm country and Taste the Bounty!
