August tradition from Finland: Valkosipulifestivaalit

The Garlic festivals

The garlic festivals are on the third weekend of August.

The garlic festivals are organised since 1987.

In the festivals they sell garlic, of course, foods and drinks spiced with garlic, garlic shaped things like
candles and jewellery.

Every year they choose the garlic person of the year,
who is publicly commendable as a friend of garlic.

The traditional food of Kerava is garlic mutton with garlic potatoes.
