Garlic Festival

To kick off the festival on July 30, 2020, The Town Pants return to Fox Run! This upbeat folk, rock and Celtic inspired band comes straight from Vancouver, BC. Each year, The Town Pants draw thousands to Fox Run for a rockin’ outdoor concert that will have you jumping, grooving, and otherwise shaking-that-thing for days. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. No coolers, please. Bring your blankets and chairs if you’d like! The Pants play, rain or shine. Food and beverages are available at 5 PM with music starting at 6 PM. $5 admission.


Garlic Festival: August 1 & 2, 2020, from 11 AM- 5 PM each day.

Come to the Garlic Fest and browse the offerings from the 40+ vendors (garlic and otherwise), take a tour of the vineyard, enjoy live music, and indulge yourself with cooking demonstrations, wine tasting, and delicious food and wine!

If you’ve never been to the Glorious Garlic Festival, you’re in for a serious treat! You’ll have the opportunity to explore numerous varieties of freshly harvested garlic, available to taste and for purchase. It’s incredible how different each unique variety can be. We’ll have garlic experts on-hand to offer guidance to the novice grower, and to speak about the health benefits of eating garlic. We’ll also bring in chefs from across the Finger Lakes for cooking demonstrations with garlic-inspired recipes.

We keep it simple with FREE admission and FREE parking (with golf car shuttles). Friendly, leashed are dogs welcome!

We offer two garlic-infused festival menus created by Fox Run’s highly sought-after chef, Brud Holland, and by acclaimed chef/restaurateur Tony Gullace of Max of Rochester. Pair the delicious food with Fox Run’s incredible wine. Grab a bottle and enjoy a picnic, or indulge in a wine tasting.
