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.
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 continue our dedicated to providing fresh, healthy, sustainably grown produce to community members facing food insecurity
