Garlic Festival draws a crowd at Sharing Farm
More than 4,000 people came out to celebrate all things garlic at the Sharing Farm’s 5th annual Garlic Festival on Sunday.
“It’s growing leaps and bounds every year,” said Danica Scott, the director of communications at the Sharing Farm.
All of the crowd favourites from previous years were at the festival again, including garlic ice cream, which sold out part way through the event.
Throughout the day there were cooking demonstrations, farm tours, kids activities, and, of course, garlic sales.
There was tons of food, including cob oven pizza and there was live music.
The Garlic Festival was designed to raise awareness about the Sharing Farm, to fundraise money for the farm and for people “just to have a good time and celebrate garlic,” said Scott.
The event drew in almost double the amount of people it had in attendance last year.
Part of the reason for its popularity is because it is the only garlic festival in the Lower Mainland and also because of the location.
“It’s on such a beautiful property,” Scott said.
All of the money raised at the event goes towards helping the Sharing Farm help families in the community in need.
