THE GARLIC TRAIL: In addition to being a vendor at WNC Garlic Fest, we will invite vendors to be part of The Garlic Trail. Vendors will be expected to provide an authentic garlic experience for at least 250 people, this could be a food sample or something creative. The Garlic Trail will be promoted as a highlight of WNC Garlic Fest, Vendor-Participants will receive extra promotion, their logo on our website and on the WNC Garlic Trail postcard. Attendees will be offered the chance to collect the postcard and follow the Garlic Trail to collect their garlic experiences. This was extremely popular in 2015 and we hope to continue the tradition.
