Here is an event that is sure to be stinky fun for the whole family.
Garden of Eve Organic Farm & Market will hosts its 11th annual garlic festival on Saturday, Sept. 20 and Sunday, Sept 21. Long Island’s only festival dedicated to the pungent seasoning, the event will feature a garlic-eating contest, a teen sauce-making competition, cooking demos and more.
The Long Island Bluegrass Quartet, Free Grass Union, The Red River Ramblers and Buddy Merriam and The Backroads will provide live music.
There will be tasty garlic-infused items — like garlic bread and garlic fries — as well as plenty of fresh garlic for sale.
Admission is $3 per person and children under six are free. The event runs from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. both days rain or shine.
Bring some breath mints.
Garden of Eve is located at 4558 Sound Ave. in Riverhead.
