We invite you to join us for this cool-climate garlic festival which is one of the East Coast's hallmark summer happenings. Celebrating the numerous types of garlic cultivated in the Finger Lakes region, thousands of enthusiasts will gather the weekend of August 1-2 on the winery's verdant grounds that overlook Seneca Lake.
The two days of the festival include cooking demonstrations, garlic tastings and ample opportunities to meet the area's top artisan garlic growers and chefs. Added to the mix are a rich array of Finger Lakes food producers, live music and entertainment for the entire family. Throughout the festival, step inside the Tasting Room to sample our latest releases and refreshing wines for summer. A garlic-infused festival menu will be offered outside daily, crafted by acclaimed Rochester chef/restaurateur Tony Gullace, expertly matched to the signature estate wines of Fox Run. Our cafe will also have some garlic focused menu items created by Chef Brud Holland and our cafe team.
