The "Best Stinkin’ Party in South Florida" celebrates a milestone in 2019 with the 20th anniversary celebration at John Prince Park in the funkiest little city in South Florida, Lake Worth. Join us as Internationally Award Winning Event continues the tradition of being “The” signature food and entertainment event in South Florida. It all started out as a small festival in a city parking lot in Downtown Delray Beach just as this Village by the Sea was becoming the vibrant tourist destination it is today. Within five years the event gained attendance of 20,000+ and was booking major national music acts! Around that time, The Garlic Fest was nicknamed “The Best Stinkin’ Party in South Florida”. And what better way to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the “The Best Stinkin’ Party in South Florida” than with our appearance on the Cooking Channel’s “Carnival Eats”. Host Noah Cappe joined us at this year’s Garlic Fest and enjoyed Chef Winston’s great Garlic Mojo Corn Cakes in addition to a vast array of garlic laced goodies! Stay tuned for the launch of their new seasons air date and maybe catch a glimpse of yourself in the crowd! This popular food and entertainment event features national act entertainment, Gourmet Alley food area with over 100 garlic laced menu items, a large children’s amusement area with rides, hundreds of art and craft vendors and full liquor bars. Founded by a group of local folks looking to establish a fund-raising source for local non-profit organizations, the event relies on volunteer organizations to staff the event. In addition to great food, the Garlic Fest showcases a diverse and eclectic selection of national musical acts including Buddy Guy, Stephen Marley, Michael Franti, Dispatch, Rebelution, Dark Star Orchestra, Collective Soul, Sister Hazel and Trombone Shorty to name just a few. Stay tuned for who we bring to the stage this year! Celebrating its 20th year in 2019, the South Florida Garlic has become an institution in Palm Beach County and thus affectionately nicknamed “The Best Stinkin’ Party in South Florida”.
