The Garlic Festival



Set against a beautiful backdrop of rolling green hills and farmland, the Garlic Festival is located just outside of Newchurch at the heart of the stunning Isle of Wight.

The show is food and entertainment at its very best. A vast array of eats, treats, sights and sounds to suit all tastes and ages. There are huge garlic and food marquees, cooking demonstrations from top Island chefs in the all new theatre kitchen, children’s entertainers, archery and a giant fun-fair.

Enjoy hundreds of Arts and Craft stalls and scrummy produce to tempt your taste buds.

There are businesses and market stalls, talented animals and arena entertainment. Plus, live music on the big stage, a big beer tent and straw bales so you can relax and enjoy the atmosphere. The main stage always features chart toppers and great Island bands.

At the heart of the festival is Britain’s best most pungent garlic, produced right here on the Isle of Wight, in Newchurch by the multi-award winning Garlic Farm.

As ever, it’s not just garlic bulbs and amazing garlic products. Island food compares with the world’s best; meats, vegetables, cheese, honey, wine, cider and juices. You'll find garlic fudge, ice cream, popcorn, biscuits, scones, sweetcorn, mushrooms, the list goes one. You name it, you’ll find it with garlic here!

The Isle of Wight Garlic Festival is the Island's biggest summer show, and simply the best day out for all the family. The variety of food, music, fun fair and an arena packed full of traditional entertainments, animals and child friendly surprises help make this the Isle of Wight’s most popular family event.
