Your Guide to the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival

Calling all garlic fanatics to the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival. The two-day event features garlic-loving vendors from around the region to showcase their most popular (and craziest) garlic-inspired crafts and eats. Indulge your inner foodie at this one-of-a-kind festival. 

  • Embrace the Garlic Marketplace

From cookware to caramels to Christmas ornaments, there’s something garlicky for everyone to love at the market. The festival’s marketplace is organized like a large-scale farmers market and is easily accessible by paved pathways. Many vendors can accept credit cards, but you’ll want to bring cash along just in case. Carve out some time to slowly peruse and talk with the local farmers and crafters.

  • Discover the Craft Vendors

Garlic soap? Before you scream “no,” find out why garlic is so commonly used in natural remedies. Catch all the top Hudson Valley craft vendors at the fall festival. Find handmade clothing, wooden toys, jewelry, and much more during your visit. You are sure to spot the perfect something to commemorate your trip to the Valley. 

  • Indulge in the Food Vendors

If you didn’t come hungry, you went to the wrong festival. Save some space in your stomach for some of Upstate New York’s best garlic-flavored dishes. Savor a poutine dish made with hand-cut, garlic-tossed potatoes or try something new with St. Mary’s take on the traditional funnel cake, garlic fried dough. 

  • Play at the Children’s Area

Let the kiddos loose in the children’s area at the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival. Activities include pumpkin decorating, a climbing wall, and much more! It’s the perfect opportunity to teach them about sowing a garlic-filled garden while enjoying the fruits of your labor!
