The Saugerties Garlic Festival is held every fall in this quaint town in Ulster County. It is a large festival that draws over 30,000 people and over 200 exhibitors and food vendors every year. The star of the festival of course is the food. Garlic is used in everything, and you can smell it everywhere! The garlic ice cream was surprisingly yummy. There are several live music acts going on at one time, and a children's play area.
This year, the Garlic Festival will be held on September 26-27, 2015. The festival is held on Saturday, September 26 from 10am-6pm, and on Sunday, September 27 from 10am-5pm. Admissions is $10, but discount is available if you buy your ticket beforehand. Don't miss this fun event!
Below are some photos taken at the festival in 2014. It was an unseasonably warm, beautiful day. The town of Saugerties is quite charming, and deserves a visit after the festival.
