We're going to have a lot of fun this year at the Festival! It will be our 17th annual event, and it just keeps getting bigger and better each year.
Why Are We Here?
The whole idea is to provide a family event for people of all ages
, from the very young to the...ahem, wise & mature folks. Everyone is welcome!
You're In The Cariboo!
The Garlic Festival is an authentic Cariboo-style experience. It's a place where you can relax, let your hair down for a few hours, visit vendors that offer everything from Cariboo artisanal creations to some of the best garlic you'll ever meet, plunk down and listen to some excellent entertainment, sample some garlic-infused treats, and just have a lot of fun.
Come Early. Stay All Day. Or All Weekend!
We offer a Sunday morning church service (we'll publish the complete timetable a bit later) and you can come early Saturday & Sunday to enjoy breakfast served up by the eager-to-please members of our local Lac La Hache Historical Society.If you pay your adult admission of $5.00 on Saturday, you are covered for Sunday too!
If you're 12 or under, you don't pay at all - this is a family event
We'll Keep You Up To Date.
We update this website frequently as we like to share the excitement of adding entertainment acts, food, fun stuff, and the great variety of vendors that offer some of the most electic & collectible treasures in the Cariboo!
We offer high value advertising packages for Business Sponsors of the Garlic Festival. See the complete package here: SPONSORSHIPS
