The intoxicating scent of garlic and the promise of a stinking good time will once again bring the crowds back to Highwood’s 10th annual Garlic Fest on Wednesday, August 18th from 4:30-9:30 pm in the newly renovated Everts Park (111 North Avenue). Held in conjunction with Highwood’s Evening Gourmet Market, this foodie fest showcases a plethora of dishes with the ever-popular taste (and scent) of garlic, with live music and plenty of family-friendly activities to entertain all evening long.
Festival attendees will have the opportunity to sample various garlic creations from out-of-the-ordinary garlic-infused chocolate, cookies, ice cream funnel cakes, and garlic-infused cocktails, to the classic, savory options like pastas, sandwiches, sauces and spreads. In additional to garlic offerings, a wide range of local produce, gourmet cheeses, homemade pastas, baked fare, assortments of breads and pastries, an array of ethnic delicacies and local artisan wares will also be on-site to enjoy! Not to worry, there will be plenty of mints on hand and recipes will be available to take home!
