The First Annual 


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!
