Cincinnati Garlic Festival returns this year

People are always saying… “You can never have enough Garlic” so Arnold’s Bar and Grill decided to put that to the test.

In 1998 Jim Tarbell hosted an event in Grammer’s parking lot called The Cincinnati Garlic Festival. He convinced some of the best restaurants in Cincinnati to come set up booths, printed T-shirts to sell, and even had a mascot dressed up in a Garlic bulb suit. It was a little smelly and a lot of fun. This year Arnold’s received Jim’s blessing and decided that his vision needed to return to Cincinnati.

Arnold’s teamed up with no less than 8 local business, purveyors, brewers and more to create special garlic creations for this one-of-a-kind weekend. Arnold’s will have special garlic beer creations from not one, not two, but three of Cincinnati’s best breweries. Listermann’s, Fifty West and Rhinegeist have each brewed a one-off garlic beer for the event. Garlic Gelato from Madisonos, Garlic pretzels from Wunderbar!, Garlic soup from La Soupe, Garlic breads from Sixteen Bricks bakery, and garlic sausage and meats from Avril Bleh butchers. Plus, the Cincinnati Garlic Festival will be featuring its own Garlic cocktails and a bevy of Garlic themed appetizers, entrees and desserts from Chef Kayla Robison.
