Not so long ago, a few good folk from Meeniyan Town sat in the Meeniyan Store and talked about the great garlic grown in our region - across the Tarwin Valley.
The seed was sown. And on February 18th we celebrate Victoria's first Garlic Festival. We invite you to come to our town and taste the magical flavours of food inspired by fresh Australian garlic.
Learn about the 300 varieties, what to plant, where and when to plant and learn from the experts at the Garlic Institute.
Stroll through the Garlic Market and sample a wide range of fine foods and produce – all with a touch of garlic. Buy your garlic from our 30 growers. Enjoy garlic ice cream, garlic beer and visit the Festival Kitchen for cooking demonstrations all day.
Join in our Garlic Games
We offer fun for young and old and a day of entertainment in Meeniyan Town. Sit back, relax and enjoy our singers, bands, and story tellers on the Festival Stage. Come to Meeniyan, just a 90 minute drive from “the burbs of Melbourne” for the 2017 Meeniyan Garlic Festival.
