Quirky Event of the Week – Isle of Wight Garlic Festival

Each year the little island Isle of Wight, on the south coast of England is host to the world famous Isle of Wight Garlic Festival with arena entertainments hundreds of food stalls. At the huge Garlic Marquee you can try garlic beer, garlic fudge, garlic ice-cream and other delicatessens – everything with garlic flavour.

But even though garlic is the main ingredient, the festival has much more to offer. Try the award winning local lamb at one of the over hundred food stalls at the festival. You can also meet TITAN the Robot or watch one of the many acts on the main arena like the sheep dog trials, magic shows, acrobat acts, stunt artists or the talented pet shows. And when you feel up to it, grab a garlic beer and tap your toes at one of the many concerts at the great stage.

This year’s festival is on 14-15 August in Sandown on Isle of Wight and the festival area is open 10am – 6pm. For more information about the festival and how to get there, please visit The Garlic Festival website or view our Britain map for directions.

And while chewing on that last piece of garlic fudge, take the time to investigate the rest of the beautiful island. Here you can get inspired by some videos on what to do on the island.

    I went to this last year, it was amazing, and good value. I thought it was just a big summer country show, but it had a huge stage and great music. The Wurzels and The Glitter Band are this years acts. My kids loved the arena attractions and the fun fair. I thoroughly recommend it as a day out.
