The Cleveland Garlic Festival in Cleveland, Ohio features annual favorites, “Top Chef” Garlic Grill-Offs, craft beer, garlic fries, and Mitchell’s Garlic Ice Cream. Try some locally produced brews, and yes, garlic beer!

Inspired by the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California, this event is the Midwest’s ground zero “for all things garlic” combined with great live music.  Attendees enjoy garlic-themed food prepared by Cleveland celebrity chefs, a parade with Miss Garlic and her fairy princess court, cooking demonstrations on how to prepare garlic, local artists, and a stage area featuring live music from funk to jazz, bluegrass, folk, rock and a belly dancing troupe.

A children’s “Mighty Locavores” area features activities for kids with a tractor maze, cooking classes, rock climbing wall, Flower Clown, “Taste the Season”, “Get Growin’ with Garlic” and more.
