Join garlic-lovers from throughout New England as they come to sample food and crafts from hundreds of different vendors, all made from -you guessed it - garlic and herbs!
Everything from garlic ice cream to garlic jelly, pickled garlic, roasted garlic, garlic braids and, of course, plain garlic bulbs of every variety will be available for sampling and purchase, along with planting and braiding and cooking demonstrations.
For aspiring gardeners, garlic growers, garlic-lovers or those simply looking for a fun way to spend a Vermont end-of-summer day, the event promises something for everyone.
For the kids there will be face painting, inflatable fun jumps, train rides and other great children's activities. Take time to wander around the spacious lawns sampling garlic delicacies and enjoy the festivities. Relax at Ramunto's Beer and Wine Garden under the tent listening to live music both days!
