2023 Annual GarlicFest !!

Once again, it is time to celebrate the Annual GarlicFest on Sunday, August 13th at the Big Yellow Merville hall in beautiful downtown Merville.  Every year, there are dozens of different varieties of stinky garlic offered by farmers.  In addition, you may be able to listen to talented local musicians and stroll amid a variety of famous Gumboot Farmers’ Market artisans with items for sale.

Garlic Fest starts at the 12:00 noon Starting Bell, Sunday, August 13th, and runs to 4:00 pm.  Early Birds take notice that sales do not start until you hear the noon Starting Bell.

For vendors, the charge is $25/table or 5% of sales, whichever is greater.  Just let us know if you are coming (no application necessary) and we’ll collect towards the end of the event.   Vendors can start to set up at 11:00am.

The Merville Community Association has been busy this past year with pickleball players, dancing, concerts, weddings, memorials and exercise workshops.  The Community Garden, under the guidance of Green Thumb Xander, is really prolific and even supplies LUSH Valley with fresh produce.  The Sunday Gumboot Market is thriving and growing, and the manse and church are open for rentals.

So, we hope to see you at the hall, Sunday, August 13th, for a stinkin’ good time!
