This free, family-friendly festival will bring together all things garlic along with cooking demonstrations from West Restaurant and Graze Restaurant, live entertainment from the Sybaritic String Band, exhibitors, community partners and… garlic ice cream!

What: The 5th Annual Sharing Farm Garlic Festival
Where: Terra Nova Park at 2631 Westminster Hwy in Richmond
When: Sunday, August 25, 2013 from 10:00am to 3:00pm

Steveston Pizza will be making an exclusive garlic creation in the cob oven and Earnest Ice Cream will be serving up treats. Garlic lovers will rejoice with Italian Softneck and Traditional Harneck as well. Kids will love the garlic-themed craft station and there will be plenty of opportunities to stock up on garlic to take hope.

The Sharing Farm grows food to feed Richmond families in need. The Farm is run by community members for community members, and is dedicated to providing fresh, healthy, local produce to our less fortunate neighbours. The Sharing Farm operates on a tiny budget, but thanks to the generosity of our over 1,000 yearly volunteers and the devotion of a small core of part-time staff, the Farm is able to provide thousands of pounds of fruits and vegetables every year to community meals throughout the city and the Richmond Food Bank.
