Grindrod Garlic Festival Society
We were incorporated as a B.C. Society in 2015.
The purposes of the society are:
(a) To raise awareness about and promote local food and agriculture, and economically and environmentally sustainable farming practices;
(b) To foster community spirit by organizing the Grindrod Garlic Festival;
(c) To support related local community events, community organizations, artisans and education initiatives whenever possible.
The First Annual
GRINDROD GARLIC FESTIVAL
was held at the Grindrod Park on
Sunday, August 22, 2010
Organized by members of the Grindrod Recreation Association to use Grindrod Park more and eventually raise funds for a new Community Hall.
The festival's goal was to highlight what our region has to offer, educate, and offer a fun, interactive event for all ages.
"We really want the community and the public to participate and enjoy the local garlic culture.”
There are many ways to participate at this family friendly event!
