The Ultimate Farm Market Experience

It’s back!


The 15th annual Garlic Festival is officially returning to Abbey Gardens, and after a two year hiatus we are so excited to announce how we’re making this festival the biggest one yet! Featuring TWO markets, live music, workshops, special deals, and so much more, the Garlic Festival has something for everyone.

Visit the Food Hub for our farmers market, featuring fresh garlic, garlic inspired products, and garlic infused finds – plus fresh produce from the Abbey Gardens vegetable garden, fresh bread from our friends at SIRCH Bistro, and other unique products from local vendors in store.  Then hit the artisan market in the marquee tent to browse jewelry, textiles, art, and more!

Read on to find out more and plan your visit to the Festival.

Since 2008

Garlic Growers Association

The Haliburton County Garlic Growers Association started the Garlic Festival to encourage, support, and inspire garlic growers, both new and old. Over the years, the Association partnered with Abbey Gardens to grow the Festival into a community celebration of local agricultural. With a mission founded on supporting local growers and local food, Abbey Gardens is proud to continue the tradition as we grow the Garlic Festival into the future.
