“Still Stinkin’ After All These Years!” The “Best Stinkin’ Party in South Florida” returns to celebrate 22 years of garlicky goodness! Join us as this Internationally Award-Winning Event continues the tradition of being “The” signature food and entertainment event in South Florida.
Eat, drink & STINK with us at Wellington Green Park in beautiful Wellington FL!
It all started out as a small festival in a city parking lot in Downtown Delray Beach just as this Village by the Sea was becoming the vibrant tourist destination it is today. Within five years the event grew its attendance and was booking major national music acts! Around that time, The Garlic Fest was nicknamed “The Best Stinkin’ Party in South Florida”.
Garlic Fest is a community celebration of food, music, and art and in 2020 Garlic Fest brought international attention to Wellington on Jeopardy’s Game Show in March as a featured question! “The Isle of Wight & Wellington Florida both have annual festivals honoring this pungent bulb & its endless potential”.
In addition to great food, Garlic Fest showcases a diverse and eclectic selection of national musical acts including Expendables, The Wailers, G Love & Special Sauce, Buddy Guy, Stephen Marley, Michael Franti, Dispatch, Rebelution, Steel Pulse, The Mighty Mighty BosstoneS, Dark Star Orchestra, Collective Soul, Sister Hazel and Trombone Shorty to name just a few.
