Come to the 2016 Gilroy Garlic Festival (July 29, 30 and 31) for great garlicky food, live cooking competitions, and lots of fun for the whole family!
If you have never been to this event, all of us here at Anderson Behel in Santa Clara want to tell you that this event is a must. We suggest that you come early to avoid the traffic on Hwy. 101 and wear plenty of sunscreen, because it can get hot in Gilroy in July.
The heart of the Garlic Festival is Gourmet Alley, the gigantic outdoor kitchen where the world-famous “Pyro Chefs” put on a spectacular flame-up show while preparing garlic-laced calamari and scampi in huge iron skillets. Other Festival favorites include pepper steak sandwiches, pasta con pesto, fried calamari, and sausage sandwiches, as well as Gilroy garlic fries and garlic bread. And don’t forget the only-in-Gilroy garlic ice cream!
You’ll also find live entertainment on three stages, cooking contests and demonstrations, arts & crafts, wine tasting, and a fun Children’s Area too.
Advance tickets will be available online in June. Hope to see you here July 29-31, 2016!
