13th Annual Richmond Garlic Fest
A Celebration of Sustainable Agriculture
& Local Garlic!
For 12 years 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 6000 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.
