The South Florida Garlic Fest is the epitome of homegrown talent and a cultural showcase providing an outlet for local artists and chefs to express themselves. In a variety of mediums, Garlic Fest serves as a gathering festival focal point for musicians, artist of every genre and culinary artists. Each year over 40,000 local South Floridians attend to enjoy the premier food and entertainment event in South Florida.
The Garlic Fest was created by a small group of Palm Beach County residents who were looking for a creative way to provide funding for local non-profit organizations that are in support of arts and / or education for youth. The event is staffed by 18 local organizations who volunteer at the Garlic Fest providing our youth opportunities to learn life’s important lessons of teamwork and collaboration. Many return year after year just to experience the collaborative community that Garlic Fest has built! Now in its’ 18th year, the Garlic Fest has donated over $585,000 to these organizations and continues its mission to raise funds and enhance the cultural experience of Palm Beach County.
The Garlic Fest, affectionately nicknamed the Best Stinkin’ Party in town, now graduates to the best Stinkin’ Party in South Florida! The Garlic Fest is turning eighteen years old, and we figure that it is time to grow up. So, we’re taking everything that you always loved about Garlic Fest and making it bigger and better than ever before! We have outgrown our old space and sought a grander location. Our friends at Palm Beach County Parks & Recreation found the perfect new home for us at John Prince Park in Lake Worth, FL. John Prince Park is a beautiful 726 acre park, with easy access from I-95, onsite parking and a relaxing 48-acre campground complete with all the amenities. Our Internationally Award Winning Event continues the tradition of being the signature food and entertainment event in South Florida.
Our popular food and entertainment event features nationally recognized entertainment, Gourmet Alley, a food court with over 80 garlic laced menu items, a large children’s amusement area with rides, over 180 artist and craft vendors, the prestigious Garlic Chef cooking competition, Cloves & Vines Wine Garden, full liquor and beer bars.
