Experience the World's Greatest Summer Food Festival!
Come to the 2019 Gilroy Garlic Festival (July 26, 27 and 28) for great garlicky food, live entertainment, cooking competitions, and more!
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, and fried calamari, as well as Gilroy garlic fries and garlic bread. And you've got to try the only-in-Gilroy garlic ice cream!
Don't miss the special Saturday evening concert with Colbie Caillat featuring Gone West! The concert is included with Festival admission, and the park will stay open until 8pm so you can stay to enjoy the show and all the Festival has to offer.
On Sunday, we're celebrating 15 years of partnering with KRTY Hot Country 95.3 with up-and-coming country stars King Calaway, Waterloo Revival, and Caylee Hammack.
Over on the Challenge Butter Cook-Off Stage, you'll see exciting cooking contests and culinary superstars like Top Chef head judge Tom Colicchio, MasterChef Season 9 winner Gerron Hurt, and Rosewood CordeValle Executive Chef Alexander La Motte.
Be sure to visit Garlic Grove, where you can watch garlic topping demonstrations and even make your own garlic braid for a fun, free souvenir!
