About Us


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.


Event History


The First Annual 


was held 

at the Grindrod Park

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Organized by members of the Grindrod Recreation Association to use Grindrod Park more and eventually fundraise towards a new Community Hall.

The festivals 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!
