  • If you like garlic,¬†Oregon Garlic Festival is one of the world’s top ten garlic festivals – according to their old website. Unverified fact #1!
  • Garlicky and non-garlicky country treats. Including garlic ice-cream.
  • Free admission.


  • It’s a schlep out to North Plains. Very pretty, though.
  • Smaller in scale than I had imagined. Think Saturday market, only everyone’s got garlic.
