Gilroy Garlic Festival, July 24, 25 and 26, 2015
Come to the 2015 Gilroy Garlic Festival (July 24, 25 and 26) for great garlicky food, live cooking competitions, and lots of fun for the whole family!
The heart of the Garlic Festival is Gourmet Alley, the gigantic outdoor kitchen where the world-famous “Pyro Chefs” put on a spectacular flame-up show while preparing garlic-laced calamari and scampi in huge iron skillets. Other Festival favorites include pepper steak sandwiches, pasta con pesto, fried calamari, and sausage sandwiches, as well as Gilroy garlic fries and garlic bread. And don’t forget the only-in-Gilroy garlic ice cream!
You’ll also find live entertainment on three stages, live cooking contests and demonstrations, arts & crafts, wine tasting, and a fun Children’s Area and Teen Zone too. This year celebrity chef Daphne Oz from ABC-TV’s The Chew will be on hand to emcee the Garlic Showdown on Sunday, and we’ll also be hosting the first-ever Garlic Dream Wedding
