Gilroy Garlic Festival
Forget those "summer bods" you never really perfected and instead dedicate a weekend to some serious indulging. July 29th-31st, Gilroy, California will host the 38th Annual Gilroy Garlic Festival--"Summer's Ultimate Food Fair"! In addition to the Garlic Showdown or Garli-Que BBQ Challenge, there are over 50 food vendors. At the Gilroy Garlic Festival, you'll find garlic in everything--from pasta to kettle corn!
Calling all Pryos!! This year YOU can actually participate in the Flame-up Contest with the famous "Pyro Chefs" who put on a sizzling show while cooking up some garlicky calamari and scampi over giant flames in huge iron skillets. If you are feeling brave or just have a really weird fire-fetish, visit the Gilroy Garlic Festival Facebook Page to enter.
