What is the Richmond Garlic Fest?

The Sharing Farm Society is proud to announce the 12th Annual Richmond Garlic Festival!

For 11 years the Richmond Garlic Fest has been supporting the Sharing Farm's food-dignity mandate to cultivate nutritious, sustainably grown produce for community members facing food insecurity. The festival attracts community members from throughout the Lower Mainland, with an expected attendance of 6,000. Highlights for festival-goers include live birds-of-prey flying demonstrations, a celebrated children's area, an expanded farmer's market, food trucks with garlic specials, and live entertainment.

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.
