So many things I love about #Toronto, but this takes the cake. An ENTIRE festival dedicated to garlic!"

This was a great experience – a place for the whole family. Everywhere you looked there were opportunities to taste garlic, learn from presenters about its history or how to use it or how to plant it in your garden.”

This is my third year that I’ve attended the Toronto Garlic Festival, and I swear each year it keeps getting better and better. I had a ton of fun sampling a variety of delicious food, craft beer, and even managed to participate in a free garlic shot."

If the turnout at the Garlic Festival was any indicator, the bulbous plant may represent mankind’s best hope for world peace and intercultural harmony. The crowd was made up of a remarkably diverse cross-section of Torontonians—representing all ages, races, and genders…"

Such a scene, packed to the brim with all things garlic and garlic lovers. Offerings appealed to all senses, all ages, all demographics.”

City people’s interest in their food and where it comes from is palpable. They hunger for the country and the soil. I can’t think of a better food than garlic around which to centre a festival and draw people. It celebrates the diversity of a particular genus and how important it is to preserve the diversity of all food."
