This year's event will be held on 18th and 19th August.
The annual garlic festival in August is a unique (and pungent) slice of life on our Island. Hot crusty bread, moules, lamb, beer, even ice cream will be carrying that distinctive aroma across hundreds of food stalls. But don't worry, some of it is garlic-free!
In 2008, The Bubblegum and Cheese stage featured glam rock and road safety legend Alvin Stardust performing his greatest hits, while the Apple Beatles served up a slice of uncanny Fab Four magic. The main arena will also featured fire eaters, stilt walkers, and exotic animals.
BBC TV's Gardeners' World, Isle of Wight Radio, and other famous faces joined approximately 20,000 people to sample the best produce the island has to offer, as well as arts and crafts, a children's stage with puppet shows and magic, sporting events, classic vehicles, a huge beer tent, and much much more.
Join us for a fabulous weekend - it's great fun, and the proceeds go to support local charities, sports teams, and local producers and traders.
