This is a past event.
Sample all things savory this weekend at Cleveland’s Garlic Festival. Now in its sixth year, the event is sponsored by the North Union Farmers’ Market and, true to its name, boasts a variety of garlic-flavored foods.
Head out to Shaker Square to witness competitions between touted “garlic masters” and grill-offs for garlic-y dishes involving beef, chicken and pork. Taste flavorful food samples and relax in the live music area. Starting at noon on Saturday, the fest sounds like a pungent blast; we’re thinking it may not be the best spot for a first date though. Tickets are $8 for one day and $12 for the whole weekend. (Cortni Dietz)
