When: Sat., Aug. 27 2016
Northeast Ohio is prime garlic-growing territory, so it makes perfect sense to honor the stinking rose with its very own festival. A fundraiser for the North Union Farmers’ Markets, the Cleveland Garlic Festival features music, wine and beer vendors, food competitions, top chef grill-offs, and countless vendors peddling garlic-scented foods. The festival also rounds up many of the region’s best garlic growers, making the fest the best place for wannabe garlic growers to purchase this year’s planting stock. The event takes place today from noon to 9 p.m. and tomorrow from noon to 6 p.m. at Shaker Square. Admission is $9. clevelandgarlicfestival.org.
