      i went to a garlic festival @ waikiki shell many years ago.

      who is planning to attend this one?

      1. re: KaimukiMan

        I attended the first one they had in the Ward area some years ago, but that was before the construction across from Ward Center began...that was where it was held, where the street now cuts thru to Queen.. It was enjoyable, and the only memory that stands out was the garlic ice cream which was delicious. Can't remember seeing word of it in recent years, but if it is anything like the one I recall, it should be worthwhile.

      2. OK... so on June 14 there is the garlic & ginger festival at Ward Center
        then on June 29 eat the street focuses on garlic in Kakaako (regular location)
        then on July 7&8 is the state farm fair at Kualoa Ranch
        then on July 14 is Eat the Street Kapolei II
        and on July 27 is Eat the street Spicy in Kakaako again

            I completely forgot about the farm fair. We stopped going when they moved it from McKinley (how long ago is that!) to the Aloha Stadium. We attempted what a big mistake and headache that was to attend when it was first held at Bishop Museum. I may think of moseying up the road to it this year. I always enjoyed it. Kualoa is a great place for it and you could swing by Hee'ia
            Pier Deli for lunch!

              got you beat, I've lived here since 1976 and still haven't managed to get to the farm fair. but i agree kualoa seems like a much better place for it than the parking lot of aloha stadium. I had forgotten about Bishop Museum holding it.
