Experience the World's Greatest Summer Food Festival!

Come to the 2021 Gilroy Garlic Festival for great garlicky food, live entertainment, exciting cooking competitions, and more!

The heart of the Gilroy 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, and fried calamari, as well as Gilroy garlic fries and garlic bread. And you simply must try the only-in-Gilroy garlic ice cream!

The Gilroy Garlic Festival has always brought our local community together, and now more than ever we welcome you to join us and help support our mission of providing vital funding support for over 150 local charities and non-profit organizations. Come celebrate garlic and all that is good in Gilroy!
