Koonya Garlic Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

26 Feb 2022 Annual Event

The Koonya Garlic Festival is not only Australia’s longest-running garlic festival, it has become one of Tasmania’s most widely anticipated annual harvest festival events. The festival is held in the picturesque valley of Koonya on the ruggedly beautiful Tasman Peninsula just over an hour southeast of Hobart.
At the heart of the festival is the Koonya Garlic Festival Garlic Grower’s Competition open to both amateur and professional growers of all ages. Each year throngs of passionate garlic growers take part in the competition to vie for a coveted ‘Golden Globe’.
One of the most popular elements of the festival is the free masterclasses, talks and the Gardening Q&A conducted by some of Australia and Tasmania’s top experts in their fields. Visit the festival website for more details about the competition and masterclasses.
Each year the festival also showcases a fantastic lineup of local/regional musicians, some of Tasmania’s best gourmet produce, wine, cider, beer and gin, plus a smorgasbord of delicious garlic-inspired dishes to enjoy on the day.
Kids will not be disappointed with a fantastic array of activities on the day to keep them entertained so that parents can kick back, relax and have some fun!
2022 promises to be the best festival yet – not to be missed! For more information and to book please visit our website.
