This page was for the 2012 Garlic Festival. For 2013, we’ve kicked it up!
The 5th Annual Garlic Festival has it’s own website.

Head over to garlicfestival.sharingfarm.ca


The Sharing Farm’s annual garlic festival is the only garlic festival in Metro Vancouver and the place to be for garlic lovers. Admission is free and families are most welcome. This is a great family event so mark your calendar and plan to spend a few hours. Festival highlights include artisan garlic sales, garlic ice cream, cooking demonstrations, live entertainment, fun kids activities, local exhibitors, and food vendors. Onsite parking is only for visitors with restricted mobility. Free shuttles are available from two satellite locations. Read more about parking
