A Garlic Festival on the Isle of Wight

Submitted by on July 22, 2018 – 8:38 amNo Comment

Garlic Festival, Isle of Wight, England, Great Britain, United Kingdom, August 2018Who knew that the British Isle of Wight was a hotbed of garlic cultivation? Your Road Trips Foodie certainly didn’t.

Here’s proof: the Garlic Festival taking place August 18 and 19, 2018, on this island off the southern coast of Great Britain. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.

Tickets are available online, and at the gate during the show. You’ll find the fest at Fighting Cocks Crossroads, Bathingbourne Lane, Sandown, Isle of Wight, England.

There will be more to buy (and eat) than just garlic bulbs and garlic products, to wit: meats, vegetables, cheese, honey, wine, cider, and juices. Not to mention garlic fudge, garlic beer, garlic vodka, ice cream, popcorn, biscuits, scones, sweetcorn, and mushrooms. A “big beer tent” will offer ales and ciders made on the Isle of Wight, and, of course, there’s a tea tent.

The weekend program includes cookery demonstrations, presentations, and talks in the theatre kitchen. Representatives of The Garlic Farm will be on hand to tell you everything you need to know about cooking with garlic, garlic for health, and gardening.

It’s said that the country’s most pungent garlic is produced by The Garlic Farm in Newchurch. They have been growing garlic on the Isle of Wight for more than 50 years, and are the United Kingdom’s largest specialty garlic grower.
