Ratatouille garlic veggie crepe, barbeque garlic ribs… garlic beer? What’s up with all the garlic?
It’s the 16th Annual Garlic Fest and Craft Show in Chehalis. The event runs August 24, 25 and 26 at the Southwest Washington Fairgrounds.
With over 70 varieties of garlic-flavored foods, (even brownies with garlic frosting!) the Garlic Fest is a garlic-lover’s dream.
“A lot of people like the garlic quinoa dish, it’s extremely delicious and nutritious,” says Judy DuVual, Garlic Fest Producer, “But for plain decadence, there are things like garlic-parmesan elephant ears.”
To wash down all the savory and sweet foods, a beer garden featuring garlic beer created by Dick’s Brewing, and wine tastings will both be available.
For the craft-lover, the amount of handcrafted art, clothing, and bath and body products also reaches the impressive over- 70 mark. Antiques for sale will be on site, too.
And what festival wouldn’t be complete without music and activities?
Garlic Fest has got it covered. With pony rides and face painting for the kids and cooking demonstrations for the grown-ups plus live music all weekend, Garlic Fest is family fun at its finest.
“It gives people something very fun and exciting to do,” says DuVual, “It’s got a little bit of everything.”
