The Gilroy Garlic Festival

Monday, June 6th, 2016

When I tell people that I’m from Gilroy, almost always their response is, “oh, the garlic place?”  The dedicated people of Gilroy have done an amazing job internationally in establishing our town as the Garlic Capital of the World.

On July 29-31, Gilroy will celebrate, what has been noted as, the largest culinary festival in the world…The Gilroy Garlic Festival.

My dad always said that garlic is Italian birth control…and once you eat for an entire day at the “Festival”, you will know why.  No one will want to get near you!

There are fabulous food vendors, art exhibits, live music events, childrens area, beer booths and of course the Rotary Wine Pavilion where only local wines are served.

Solis Winery will proudly be pouring at the Pavilion where all the net proceeds will given away by Rotary to local agencies and youth programs.
