Hudson Valley Garlic Festival

The Kiwanis club of Saugerties and the Garlic Festival Committee are in full swing planning another great Hudson Valley Garlic Festival for your enjoyment, See you there!

Follow your nose and the signs for the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival through the historic village of Saugerties NY to Cantine Field…

It’s here on the last full weekend in September, the Kiwanis Club and founder Pat Reppert (the The Garlic Goddess) host the 2nd largest Garlic Festival in the country.

100 garlic growers, loads of unique craft vendors, and 4 different stages of live music offer plenty to see, do, and taste at the The Saugerties Garlic Festival!

Never tried roasted garlic chocolate truffles or garlic ice cream? Never knocked back a garlic shooter? Well, here’s your chance.

Yes, you will leave stinking of garlic… but who cares!

We’d like to share with you our experience at the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival.

The Saugerties Garlic Festival is a chance to get your love of garlic out of your pores, and into the greater garlic loving community here in the Hudson Valley!

Even if you’re not that into garlic, there are plenty of options for a good time. Your kids will enjoy face painting and climbing an artificial rock wall…

…You can learn tips from the pros about cooking with garlic, and even learn how to make garlic braids…

And, while you’re there you might as well stock up on huge fresh bulbs of garlic to take home.

The quality is outstanding and there is a difference!

Just remember to store in a warm dry place to keep them from sprouting. Happy Harvesting!

*Remember, the festival is on the last full weekend of September in Saugerties, NY at Cantine Field!

Garlic! That great little vegetable that defines the saying “a little goes a long way”, has been used by humans for over 7,000 years and has been a valuable commodity for everyone from the Romans to WWII soldiers. Both good-tasting and good for you, garlic has a wide range of uses as a seasoning and for medicinal purposes and is grown in every U.S. state except Alaska. It is high in vitamin C, contains antiseptic properties and aids in heart function and health. And of course, one can’t discount it’s abilities to keep vampires at bay! One side effect of garlic is the infamous “garlic breath”, which can clear a room faster than a 75% off Zales promo code. Fear not! At the Saugerties Garlic Festival you’ll be surrounded by others chomping away on this potent seasoning, so dig in and enjoy sampling the many different foods and preparations on hand. You and your garlic breath will be in good company at this fantastic festival! For more fun garlic facts, check out the Wikipedia page for garlic.
