Garlic Festival History

The Sharing Farm’s annual Garlic Festival is the only garlic festival in Metro Vancouver and the place to be for garlic lovers. This is a great family event so mark your calendar and plan to spend a few hours. Festival highlights from previous years include artisan garlic sales, garlic ice cream, cooking demonstrations, live entertainment, fun kids activities, local exhibitors, and food vendors.

For several years, The Sharing Farm has hosted the only Garlic Festival in Metro Vancouver and the largest agriculturally-based festival in Richmond. Bringing together great food, great music and great garlic, this free event is open to all ages. Come shop, eat and enjoy the beauty of Richmond’s multiple award-winning Terra Nova Park. Even with threatening rain clouds and a very small advertising budget, last year’s festival was attended by over 2,000 garlic lovers. This year we anticipate between 2,500 and 3,000 guests to our largest single fundraiser of the year.
