The Garlic Fest and Craft show got its start perched on Sunshine Hill with a view of Mount Rainier and the Chehalis River Valley in 1996. As the Garlic Fest participation and attendance grew so did the need for a larger location. Now located at the Southwest Washington Fairgrounds the newly minted Washington State Garlic Fest is the largest gathering of garlicious eats and artisan crafts in Washington State. Vendors from across the state and the nation bring their wares to the Fairgrounds for the 23rd Annual Garlic Fest, August 23rd - 25th, 2019. Come let the aroma of garlic, sounds of Dixie Land, and enticement of unique crafts make for a Garlicous Weekend!
