The 15th Annual Long Island Garlic Festival took place at The Garden of Eve in Riverhead on Saturday and Sunday to honor “Garliciana.” Garlic lovers united for a celebration of food, farming, fun, and of course, all
things garlic.

The event offered a Junior Garlic Iron Chef contest for teams of kids of all ages, a Garlic Eating Contest, and a Stinky Garlic Breath Contest. Vendor cooking demos were also offered, as well as live music, and “How to Grow Garlic” workshops by fellow farmers.
