Stratford Kiwanis Garlic Festival

September, 2021
Ready. Set. Garlic!

Stratford Kiwanis Garlic Festival’s 14th season!

Tastings & Pairings
Tasty Seminars

Expanded and exclusive “Tastings & Pairings” seminars!

Stratford Stinks – but only once a year!

“The Stratford Garlic Festival highlights 26 different varietals of garlic that are displayed and promoted in ways that you just have to see and taste to believe.  No part of the fruit is spared as the cloves and the scapes are all valued ingredients in burgers, sauces, teas and even ice cream.  Speakers, entertainment, demonstrations, recipes, lotions and potions, can all be found at this unique harvest celebration in September, with a long list of vendors sharing their magical plant with aficionados and inquisitive foodies alike.” 

Adam Waxman, DINE Magazine:  September 3, 2018


We regret that we must cancel our 2021 ‘in person’
Stratford Kiwanis Garlic Festival.  We recognize
that COVID-19 restrictions will prohibit large, crowded,
indoor events again this year.

Please go to the Festival tab on our website
and scroll down to the  Vendor heading where you will find the contact information for all of our
2019 vendors. They look forward to hearing from you!

The Stratford Kiwanis Club cares about our community and has worked tirelessly to provide a timely, world-class event that showcases and supports local agriculture. This support has been integral in raising awareness and building markets for garlic growers across Ontario. As our premier event grows, the funds raised from this effort allow us to continue to support the children in our community and provide leadership and funding on many wonderful, community-enriching projects.
