Arts & Crafts

While you are enjoying the great food and entertainment, visit our fabulous collection of Arts and Crafts from fine artists and crafts people from around the country. They have a variety of art available: paintings, sculptures, ceramics, jewelry, photography, glass, woodworks, and clothing - something for everyone!

Each artist is selected through a jury process to ensure an outstanding collection of original pieces available for you to purchase as a gift or memento of your day at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. Artists are located in two areas of the Festival grounds on both the Park Side and Ranch Side.

We also offer FREE Garlic Braiding and Garlic Topping demonstrations all three days of the Festival! You can learn how to make your own garlic braid and take it home as a fun, free souvenir.
