Is the unique smell of garlicky scampi and pepper steak coming from Gilroy?

The annual Gilroy Garlic Festival, relaunched as a drive-thru event for these pandemic times, became famous by the fragrant bulb in town this afternoon.

For six days – from today through Sunday and July 30 to August 1 – Gourmet Ale’s Pyro chefs will put on their culinary show as festival attendees drive through the grounds of Gilroy Presbyterian Church to pick up pre-ordered meals.

Tom Kline, president of the Garlic Festival, said, “The idea was to throw a party and celebrate garlic, even if a gathering of thousands of garlic lovers might not be possible.

The menu features perennial Garlic Festival favorites – shrimp scampi, pepper steak sandwiches, sausage, garlic fries and garlic bread – plus festival T-shirts, caps, wine glasses and olive oil. For this weekend and next week advance orders are accepted here
