The smell of garlic lures people from all over the Midwest to Highwood's 3rd Annual Garlic Fest. This fun, food-filled event showcases the ever-popular taste of garlic. Some 5000 attendees come to sample a variety of garlic creations from out-of-the-ordinary garlic ice cream, candy, cupcakes & cocktails, to the more usual pastas, breads, & butters. Held during the Evening Gourmet Farmers Market, the fest features a Taste of Garlic Competition for the Savory & Sweet categories, as well as the very popular Garlic Queen Competition. The Highwood Garlic Festival happens on Wednesday August 14, 2013 from 4-9 pm in Everts Park. The Garlic Queen Competition is a 7 pm and the Taste Of Garlic Contest happens at 8 pm.
