The 2021 Hudson Valley Garlic Festival returns to Cantine Field in Saugerties, New York this weekend after a year lost to COVID. This year's festival takes place on Saturday and Sunday, October 2 & 3.  There will be three music stages, with six bands performing plus a fourth stage for The Arm of the Sea Theater.  The Homegrown String Band™ will be sharing the Pavillion Stage with Bells and Motley. We will each be presenting three sets each day.

The festival starts at 10am and the music begins around 11am each day. Other bands performing include Annie and the Hedonists, Luminous Crush, Mark Rust, and Sundad. 

Of course there will be plenty of garlic provided by food vendors as well as the forty garlic growers that will be representing farms from around the northeast.
