minnesota_garlic-festivalThe Big, The Small and The Not-So-Ugly Contest at the Minnesota Garlic Festival is for…garlic (not its growers). The growing, however, has to be done in Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, South Dakota or Iowa.

There will be prizes for “best in show” and “smallest heads” overall, and prizes for the “biggest heads” in each of 10 garlic categories: Artichoke, Asiatic, Creole, Glazed Purple Stripe, Marbled Purple Stripe, Porcelain, Purple Stripe, Rocambole, Silverskin and Turban.

The judging — and the rest of the fest — takes place August 9, 2014, at the McLeod County Fairgrounds in Hutchinson, Minnesota, on August 9, 2014. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

It’s all sponsored by the Sustainable Farming Association.
