Get your garlic on! This weekend (July 27–29), the Gilroy Garlic Festival will welcome more than 100,000 hungry visitors as the event celebrates its 40th anniversary. With three days of sensory-filled fun in Christmas Hill Park, there’s plenty to hear, see, smell, and taste. Here are some of the can’t-miss highlights from the world-famous bash.

Eat Up

Head to Gourmet Alley to taste all the ways California-grown garlic can transform into top-notch treats. Favorite dishes include garlic-laced calamari and shrimp sauteed by local chefs over massive flames. Pepper steak sandwiches made from local Harris Ranch beef will round out your surf and turf experience. For dessert? Try the famous garlic ice cream, of course.


Rock Out

Three stages will welcome high-profile musicians, including country singers Cale Dodds, Travis Denning, and Mitchell Tenpenny. Other acts include classic rockers, jazz crooners, swing bands, reggae artists, and more.
