Gilroy

Garlic Festival

Christmas Hill Park
Gilroy, CA, 95021, United States
TEL: (408) 842-1625

That they serve garlic ice cream is no surprise in the garlic capital of the world, where the annual Garlic Festival dazzles garlic lovers with food, cook-offs, and even the crowning of a Garlic Queen. You can get a free scoop at the July festival, or buy a scoop the rest of the year at the Garlic Shoppe in the Gilroy Outlet Mall.

How It Tastes: At first taste, it resembles a nice vanilla soft-serve—but the aftertaste is a doozy. “It’s a onetime experience,” admits the Garlic Festival spokesman. “I know of no one who orders three scoops with chocolate syrup and nuts, or has a scoop on their apple pie.”
