Two tons of garlic goes into the food preparations at this annual event that celebrates the benefits of the seasoning. If that's not enough to ward off your date, you can both happily participate in the arts and crafts workshops and the great garlic cook-off. There's more fun in form of celebrity cooking demonstrations, a corner for children, music, interactive sponsor displays and the Garlic Festival Queen Pageant. The non-profit Gilroy Garlic Festival Association uses the proceeds from the fair to support the community. Work with them to help society, and party with them for some wholesome, family fun.
