This annual food and art festival celebrates all things garlic — with garlicky eats, garlic-centered cooking demonstrations, and garlic-focused presentations, samples, tastings, and workshops. Orie’s Garlic Fest highlights the many facets of Wichita’s local scene: artisans, makers, farmers and ranchers, musicians, and foodies of all kinds. Let’s not forget the garlic! It’s here you’ll find the widest variety of premium grade, organically grown garlic bulbs for culinary use or fall planting. Take all that deliciousness and artistic flair and set that against the backdrop of beautiful Eberly Farm during an autumn weekend in Kansas … and you’ve got yourself a unique and fun-filled time fit for the entire family!
Hours are 11 to 4 on Saturday & 11 to 3 on Sunday
at Eberly Farm (13111 W. 21st St. N., Wichita, KS 67235)
