Richmond Garlic Fest 

A Celebration of Sustainable Agriculture
& Local Garlic!

For over a decade the Richmond Garlic Fest has been supporting the Sharing Farm's work of cultivating nutritious, sustainably-grown produce for community members facing food insecurity. The festival attracts approximately 5000 people from throughout the Lower Mainland. Highlights for festival goers include live birds-of-prey flying demonstrations, a celebrated children's area, a diverse farmer's market, food trucks with garlic specials, and live entertainment.

The Richmond Garlic Fest is by donation, with a suggested minimum donation of $5 per person. 

All donations go directly to the Sharing Farm to support our work.

Sorry, No Dogs!

We love our furry friends, but Terra Nova Park is in an important Bird Area.
City of Richmond Bylaws mean that no dogs are allowed, even on leash.
