It’s garlic festival time!

MEENIYAN will host its annual Garlic Festival this Saturday and is tipped to attract record crowds for its third year! Don’t miss this exciting, local produce fanfare full of cooking shows from international and local chefs, garlic plaiting and live entertainment. Children’s entertainment includes billy cart and sack races with balloon soccer, all day magic shows and an abseiling wall. Growers are expected to bring in 4000kg of garlic making it the perfect place to learn. The festival runs from 9am to 4pm at the Meeniyan Recreation Reserve. Entry is $10 for adults. Kids are free. Dogs on leads are welcome with free parking and shuttle buses from Stony Creek Race Course.

Full flavoured: Sharon and Rob Fisher of Blue Tree Honey Farm at Dumbalk will be at the Meeniyan Garlic Festival this Saturday, February 16.
Last Wednesday, they were busy preparing batches of roasted garlic and rosemary infused honey that they will be selling at the festival, perfect for marinading meat and for medicinal purposes.
