It's chic to reek! In the land of clams, crab and oysters what are folks looking forward to in June? Garlic, and plenty of it! Celebrate the passion for this exalted bulb with the faithful throngs who make their annual pilgrimage to the NW Garlic Festival which is held each June in the seaside community of Ocean Park, Washington, located on the Long Beach Peninsula. This GARLIC Olympics of Gastronomy is not held for the region's GARLIC growing ability. This Festival was born out of love of great, GARLIC laden cuisine! Garlic Food - Speciality food and craft vendors will offer up this supernatural powered herb, prepared and put to use in every imaginable way including some ways that go beyond. Where else could indulgence be so healthy? Garlic Decor - GARLIC decor is the hottest fashion trend for home and garden, find it here first! GARLIC bird houses and wind chimes, GARLIC pottery and art. Personal items such as hand made soaps of GARLIC and rosemary are particularly popular. Jewelry, hats and clothing laden with GARLIC abound. LIVE MUSIC - North Coast Blues, Seymour Baker Band, Ilwaco HS Jazz Band and new to our event: Britnee Kellogg - country artist and former American Idol contestant.
