The Hills Garlic Festival is held each year on the Sunday following Labour Day. This year, the 24th Annual Festival will take place on September 11, 2016, at Centennial Park in New Denver, BC.
With the theme "Homemade - Homegrown - Organic," more than 160 vendors will be selling bulk garlic, braided garlic, seed garlic, garlic powder, garlic syrup, pickled garlic, garlic dips, and garlic snacks; fresh organic produce; plants and plant products; local crafts of jewelry, glass, wood, furniture, pottery, textiles, metal, and stones; soaps, lotions, and herbal remedies; and lots of great food, including Thai, Mexican, Asian, BBQ, hamburgers and hot dogs, baking, chocolates, ice cream, and other delicious snacks.
Live music and family entertainment runs throughout the day on two stages. Contests provide the opportunity to win for heaviest garlic clove, largest garlic bulb, prettiest braid or wreath, and best garlic themed poem. Lucky winners receive beautiful baskets of sample goods donated by our vendors by purchasing raffle tickets from the Hills Recreation Society.
Walk, ride the shuttle bus, peddle your bicycle, paddle your kayak... however you get there, we look forward to seeing you at this unique community event for the whole family!
Due to health and safety regulations no dogs except service dogs are allowed at the Festival. Please leave your dogs at home.
