Celebrating The Stinking Rose: Gilroy Garlic Festival, CA

Every year at the end of July, tens of thousands of people gather in the town of Gilroy, AKA the “Garlic Capital of the World.” Located about 50 miles southeast of San Francisco, it’s the locale of the Gilroy Garlic Festival.

As its Website proclaims, here, you can “feast on food laced with over two tons of fresh garlic, enjoy three stages of musical entetainment, shop in arts and crafts, view the great garlic cook-off and other celebrity cooking demonstrations, spend time in the children’s area, visit interactive displays set up by many of our sponsors, soak up some glorious sunshine, and mingle with a fun bunch of garlic-loving people.” Read more.
