Festival Ambassadors are energetic young individuals (ages 18-24) who are passionate about supporting the Gilroy Garlic Festival and the local community. Ambassadors welcome visitors all three days of the Festival, participate in cultural exchange programs with Gilroy's Sister Cities, and proudly represent the Gilroy Garlic Festival at various events throughout the year.
