What people are saying about the Toronto Garlic Festival:

“Local farmers, foodies and chefs came together earlier this fall celebrating all things garlic at Toronto’s second annual Garlic Festival. I went because I want to grow garlic next year and needed tips on the best growing practices. Mission accomplished, I have five different types to grow. Plus I got to sample some wonderful garlic-infused dishes that are sure to keep the vampires away.” Lucy Waverman, Globe and Mail. October 12, 2012

This festival was one that fitted me like a glove what with my long love affair with garlic. As this was a weekend to celebrate this flavorful bulb, all vendors went on garlicky overdrive. From this point on, this festival for my beloved garlic would surely be one of my traditions. Ann Gagno, Food Trippin’. October 14, 2012

“This was a great experience–a place for the whole family. Everywhere you looked there were opportunities to taste garlic, learn from presenters about its history or how to use it or how to plant it in your garden… It’s not to be missed.” Pat Anderson, Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance
