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:
- 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.
