Never been to the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival in Saugerties? The annual festival will be taking place on Oct. 1 from 10AM-6PM and Oct. 2 from 10AM to 5PM. Here are a couple of tips that will save you a few dollars and make your day even better than you were expecting.
1. Buy your tickets in advance. Here are the locations where you can pick them up. Advance tickets will cost $7 each, $5 for 65 and over, kids under 12 are free. Tickets at the gate will be $10 each.
2. Plan to get there by 10:30. This will get you in there before the big crowds. You won’t get stuck in traffic (which only angers you and takes away from your time to look around) and you’ll arrive in a happier mood.
3. Eat a light breakfast to leave space for all of your sampling. There will be garlic this and garlic that. Most samples will be complimentary (the garlic vinegar and hot sauce are two I look for each year), but there will be garlic flavored food items for you to purchase. Including, but not limited too, garlic flavored ice cream and garlic taffy. If you have ever thought that it could have garlic in it, or made with it, it will be at this place.
