“Still Stinkin’ After All These Years!” The "Best Stinkin’ Party in South Florida" returns for 21 years of garlicky goodness! Join us as this Internationally Award Winning Event continues the tradition of being “The” signature food and entertainment event in South Florida. Eat, drink & STINK with us at John Prince Park in the funkiest little city of South Florida, Lake Worth Beach! 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 30,000+ and was booking major national music acts! Around that time, The Garlic Fest was nicknamed “The Best Stinkin’ Party in South Florida”. In 2018 The Cooking Channel got a whiff of our stinkin’ party and featured us on their hit show, “Carnival Eats”! Host Noah Cappe enjoyed Chef Winston’s great Garlic Mojo Corn Cakes in addition to a vast array of garlic laced goodies! 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, Garlic Fest showcases a diverse and eclectic selection of national musical acts including Buddy Guy, Stephen Marley, Michael Franti, Dispatch, Rebelution, Steel Pulse, The Mighty Mighty BosstoneS, 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!
