covid-19 update

Sept 16, 2021 – The Toronto Garlic Festival will not be held at Artscape Wychwood Barns in 2021. But we have an alternate plan. The public health considerations and financial risk (we are a not-for-profit) caused by Covid-19 are significant obstacles standing in the way of a having a large public gathering. This is unfortunate for the farmers, chefs and food producers who come together every year to celebrate the Ontario garlic harvest and share their love of garlic, and a taste of their culture, with people from all walks of life.  

Alternate Plan – While the Toronto Garlic Festival will not take place this September, we are making alternate plans to celebrate the Ontario garlic harvest later this Fall. It will involve restaurants and garlic farmers in a novel plan that allows for public health considerations including the safety of our staff and volunteers. Details will be announced shortly. We are working hard to get you your Ontario garlic. For updates please sign up for our newsletter
