Eastern Ontario Garlic Festival Updates
Cornwall, ON – August 25 2017 — Attention garlic lovers! The Eastern Ontario Garlic Festival activities will continue as planned on August 26-27. Despite the NAV Centre accommodating asylum seekers, the festival is still a go!
In fact, many of the asylum seekers are families who are excited to participate in the EOGF, and many of which have offered to volunteer for this family-oriented event. This celebration of everything local is a perfect opportunity for the asylum seekers to learn and appreciate our Canadian culture.
Due to the Cornwall Triathlon happening at the same time as EOGF, there will be a detour to access the NAV Centre.
Take Second Street East, turn onto Billington Drive, turn right onto Concord Avenue, and turn left into the NAV back road. Please use the football field along Montreal Road for parking.
This is a country fair in the city where vendors and exhibitors are showcasing produce and products grown and created locally. The event will feature artisans, farmers market, foodies, workshops and so much more from our region.
There will be fun for the whole family with a beer and wine garden, children’s activities, a senior’s hut, high tea, a fashion show, dancing, music and so much more!

Christmas spirit is alive and well in Cornwall and the Counties as Upper Canada Village's Alight at Night and The Alexandria Festival of Lights prepare to light up the region with their spectacular displays of Christmas lights.
One of the most fascinating displays of culture occurs at the Akwesasne International Powwow. On September 6 - 7, celebrate the traditions of the First Nation people.
