Perth Garlic Festival
“There is no such thing as a little garlic.” ~ Arthur Baer
It was my first time attending the garlic festival in Perth this past weekend. It was also definitely my first time to be a vendor there as well. On the first day of the festival rain clouds put a damper on most of the day, but still didn’t stop a great number of people from making it out to look around. Between the pockets of rain people sampled a wide variety of healthy foods and walked away with piles of fresh garlic. Garlic ice cream and garlic beer were even on tap for the adventurous garlic lover.
The second day of the festival, was much more lively. The weather was beautiful and people from all over Lanark County came out to experience the beauty that is fresh garlic. People as far as the United States came to experience this festival, along with neighbours in Ottawa, Toronto and Kingston. By the time noon rolled around on Sunday we had completely sold out of all our chicken jerky product. With only a few of our dried garlic chips remaining, we decided to pack it in.
It was an excellent feeling to have been so well received, but at the same time, wished we had made a bit more. We hope the word of our product continues to spread in order to share the healthful delicious world of chicken jerky. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the big 20th anniversary of the Perth Garlic Festival. Thank you everyone for your support and all of the vendors for working hard to deliver their wonderful products to the public. See you next year!
