Toronto Garlic Festival
September 15 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Toronto Garlic Festival is the annual celebration of Ontario’s garlic harvest where Ontario farmers sell garlic and local chefs cook with garlic.
The festival features Ontario farmers and chefs, small scale rural and urban food producers, and craft and alcoholic beverage producers. Festival visitors stock up on their winter supply of fresh garlic and taste delicious garlic-themed food and black garlic beer. They buy garlic-themed products while listening to live music, enjoy festival screenings, participate in educational talks, get a free garlic shot from a garlic barista, enjoy grilled garlic scapes, have their breath measured in the parts-per-billion in the garlic breath contest, attend art workshops and cooking demos and; donning VR goggles, participate in a virtual reality Ontario farm tour.
The festival works with farmers, chefs, chocolatiers, small-scale food producers, craft breweries and wineries to develop and promote Ontario garlic-themed products. The festival encourages small-scale farmers and food producer to attend as vendors.
