The 24th annual Hills Garlic Festival was held on Sunday, September 11, 2016, with over 6000 people shopping, eating, visiting with friends, and enjoying the entertainment. Over 160 vendors sold a variety of harvest bounty, crafts, and food. Mountain Station and Freya provided excellent music on the main stage. Flydini the Magician mystified the crowds at the family entertainment tent. Bubbles the Clown created intriguing balloon sculptures to delight the young and young at heart. Thanks to the Village of New Denver for being excellent hosts.
Whether it was your first time at the Festival or your 24th, whether you are a vendor, a volunteer, or a patron, thanks for your support, thanks for your cooperation with our Zero Waste Event recycling and composting, and special thanks for keeping people and bears safe in a less than easy situation.
Join us next year on Sunday, September 10, when we will celebrate our 25th anniversary!
