The Delray Beach Garlic Fest has been featured on the Food Network and in countless national newspapers and magazines and has been affectionately named “The Best Stinkin’ party in town. The Delray Beach Garlic Fest takes place January 29-31 in downtown Delray Beach.

The health benefits of garlic are as strong as its infamous scent. Garlic is rich in antioxidants and consuming it regularly can maintain a healthy heart by slowing down the hardening of the arteries. Garlic also can strengthen the immune system and ward off the common cold. The Garlic Fest lives up to its reputation for being the premier food and live music entertainment event in South Florida.
