More than 1,000 people came out to the Revelstoke Garlic Festival at the Track Street Growers farm on Sunday, wildly exceeding the organizers’ expectations.

The third annual garlic festival was hosted by Sarah Harper and Stu Smith at their farm on Sept. 18.

With an expanded number of vendors, a stellar lineup of local musicians and the Local Food Initiative behind it, the festival drew 850 adults and 350 children over the course of the day.

There, they were able to browse 16 food and craft vendors, enjoy the live entertainment and take in a game of Chicken Bingo.

The event was a fundraiser for the LFI and the money will go to support food security initiatives in Revelstoke.
