Gourmet Alley:
The Official Food of the Gilroy Garlic Festival

The heart of the Gilroy Garlic Festival is the world-famous Gourmet Alley. In this gigantic outdoor kitchen, the “Pyro Chefs” put on a spectacular flame-up show while preparing garlic-laced calamari and scampi in huge iron skillets.

Meanwhile, hundreds of volunteers prepare all the official food of the Gilroy Garlic Festival—including:

  • Calamari
  • Scampi
  • Pepper Steak Sandwiches
  • Italian Sausage Sandwiches
  • Pasta con Pesto
  • Stuffed Mushrooms
  • Marinated Mushrooms
  • Garlic Bread
  • Garlic Fries
  • Zesty Fried Garlic Calamari
  • Gilroy Garlic Shrimp

With so many great options, we know it's tough to decide. That's why we offer two different "Combo Plates" so you can sample some of the all-time Festival favorites!

  • Combo Plate 1: ½ Peppersteak Sandwich, Calamari, Pasta con Pesto, Garlic Bread.
  • Combo Plate 2: ½ Sausage Sandwich, Scampi, Mushrooms, Garlic Bread.
  • Note: Combo Plate choice is made at the Festival

Save $2 off regular admission when you buy your ticket online—and save another $2 when you order a Gourmet Alley Combo Plate with your online ticket!



The Gilroy Garlic Festival exclusively features California-grown garlic and is proud to serve Harris Ranch beef in Gourmet Alley. Challenge Butter is the official butter of the 2018 Gilroy Garlic Festival.
