Garlic festival will be a thing of the past

 Gilroy Garlic Festival canceled indefinitely

This is a shame. Not because I want to go to the festival, but because it is an ending of sorts. A change if you will.

The Garlic Festival has been a fixture in California for a long damn time. The article says 42 years, but I think it is longer.

Garlic ice cream, garlic jelly, hell they might've even had garlic possum guts for all I know. The couple of times my wife and I went they had every garlic concoction known to man and a few known by space aliens.


  1. I use to live in San Jose, about 20 miles North of Gilroy and attended the Garlic Festival numerous times. It closed due to damn coward yuppy liberal types that moved to Gilroy and ruined a once proud cow town...

    1. Yep. Looks like though the festival will start being held here in Fresno.
