At it’s heart, WNC Garlic Fest is a celebration of all things garlic. The festival brings together local garlic-inspired vendors to create a family friendly farmers market feel infused with so much garlic! The WNC Garlic Trail is an unforgettable experience of local creativity and flavors as participating vendors offer garlic infused samples. And our commitment to education and growing gives everyone an opportunity to learn about growing great garlic.
WNC Garlic Fest is an opportunity to eat some creative, awesome and inspired garlic dishes! Garlic Ice Cream with garlic sprinkles, Garlic Fudge, Garlic Cookies, Honey Fermented Garlic. Come explode your taste buds on the WNC Garlic Trail!
The Utopian Seed Project’s mission is to celebrate diversity in food and farming. This event has plenty of delicious food, but there will also be plenty of learning opportunities with garlic growing classes, a variety showcase and local vendors sharing wisdom.
It is our hope that we can inspire you to support our local food system. Meet farmers who are growing and selling garlic locally; Learn to grow your own; Support businesses who are sourcing locally grown garlic. Let’s make WNC garlic independent!
