As you wander through our marketplace make sure to stop at the booths of our wine, mead, beer, distilled spirits, and cheese vendors who will be selling sample-sized tastings of their products.

Explore and compare wines from the unique terroirs of the Niagara Peninsula, Prince Edward County, Huron Shores, and Huron County.

Discover and sample sweet and dry versions of this honey-based beverage with a 7,000 year history.produced by an Ontario vendor who has been in business over 100 years!

Or perhaps indulge yourself with a thirst-quenching beer from Stratford’s very own brewery.

Cocktails anyone? Our distillers will feature samples of new, creative cocktails, selected spirits, and a fascinating range of flavoured moonshines.

And, not to be outdone, our cheese vendors will be selling small sample plates of selected Ontario cheeses.

Tickets can be purchased in $1 units at both the entrance to our Garlic Festival and in our marketplace right in the midst of these vendors. Please note that vendors will charge one or more $1 tickets units commensurate with each sample tasting on offer.

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.
