The World's Greatest Summer Food Festival

Come to the 2017 Gilroy Garlic Festival (July 28, 29 and 30) for great garlicky food, live entertainment, 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!
