The Gilroy Garlic Festival is the world's greatest summer food festival — three full days of incredible food, beverages, arts & crafts, live entertainment, and cooking competitions. Founded in 1979, this event is hosted by thousands of community volunteers who have raised millions of dollars for local schools, charities, and non-profit organizations.
To date, the Gilroy Garlic Festival has raised more than $11.5 million dollars for local schools and non-profit groups—and has given the city of Gilroy a sense of true community pride as well as instant worldwide recognition. In 2018, the Gilroy Garlic Festival will celebrate 40 years of family fun.
