Submitted by on July 19, 2018 – 8:54 amNo Comment

Elephant Garlic Festival, North Plains, OregonThe 21st annual Elephant Garlic Festival takes place August 10, 11 and 12, 2018, in Jessie Mays Community Park, 30975 NW Hillcrest Street, North Plains, Oregon.

Hours are noon to 11 p.m. August 10, 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. August 11, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. August 12. Note, however, if you want to partake in the annual garlic breakfast, it’s set for 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. August 11.

Admission is free. The event is operated by the North Plains Events Association for the City of North Plains.

Now, a word to the wise: elephant garlic isn’t actually garlic (which is a good thing if you find garlic too pungent). According to Wikipedia, elephant garlic (Allium ampeloprasum var. ampeloprasum) is a perennial plant belonging to the onion genus — a variant of the garden leek. It has a tall, solid, flowering stalk and broad, flat leaves much like those of the leek, but forms a bulb consisting of very large, garlic-like cloves.
