Several Oregon and Washington garlic growers will bring thousands of heirloom and gourmet hard neck and soft neck garlic, representing 30 different strains, to the 2019 Clatskanie Garlic Festival.
The bulbs have been carefully cured so they will stay fresh for six to 10 months depending on the variety.
Cooking garlic as well as seed garlic will be sold.
Garlic varieties will go from fiery hot to mild and everything in between. Pickled garlic, dried garlic scape sprinkles, garlic braids and artisan breads will be for sale.
There will also be music, food, cooking demonstrations, vegetables, crafts and children’s activities.
If you are a garlic lover be prepared to buy your year’s supply of garlic at this annual event.
