Garlic fest heats up Hutchinson Aug. 10

Get ready for the 8th Annual Minnesota Garlic Festival, set for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, at the McLeod County Fairgrounds in Hutchinson, Minn.

Coordinated by the Sustainable Farming Association of Minnesota, ticket prices are as follows: Adults: $5, Kids under 12: $3, stroller/carried babies free; $1 Parking per vehicle.

The Minnesota Garlic Festival, according to the festival’s website, is the “premier event for lovers of garlic, great local foods and good times!” Family friendly, fun filled and fragrant, the event features fantastic foods, celebrity chefs and cooking demonstrations, marvelous music, area artisans, goofy games…and lots of GARLIC – all in support of a healthy environment, sustainable farms and vital rural communities in Minnesota.

Warners Stellian, Minnesota’s home and kitchen appliance store and Garlic Festival sponsor, will be giving away a top-of-the-line gas grill at this year’s festival. This will be the very same grill used by Mary Jane Miller for the Chef Demo Stage, and she will be awarding it to some lucky festival fan.
