We start off our day with a trip to the Stratford Garlic Festival, the premier garlic celebration in Ontario.
Sample hundreds of items from specialty food producers offering food, preserves, dressings, vinaigrettes, jams & condiments. Tantalizing garlic themed entrees cooked by local chefs. Celebrity cooking demonstrations, garlic braiding demonstrations and informative talks. And of course great live Ontario folk music all afternoon on the music stage. As all the producers will tell you.... "there's no such things as too much garlic!"
Keeping with the theme of food, after our exploration at the garlic festival, we will proceed to the Waterloo Region Museum & Doon Village for a very special hands-on guided tour with the museum's horticultural specialist through their historical gardens of vegetables and flowers.
And finally, we will end our day at one of our favourite dinner stops, the Crossroads Restaurant in the heart of Mennonite country in Elmira for a Mennonite homestyle dinner buffet.
