Garlic Festival

LABOUR DAY SATURDAY September 4th 2021  
9:00 a.m. – 2:00p.m.

This year was interesting to say the least with the Covid 19 retrictions and with the thanks to all who participated it was a success.  We look forward to seeing everyone next year.

The Verona Lions Garlic Festival is celebrated at the spacious Verona Lions Club facility, 4504 Verona Sand Road, 20 minutes north of Kingston on Road/Highway 38. This is a rain or shine event with both indoor and outdoor venues. Entry is by donation, with free parking on site. All money raised helps our Club support local and international focuses such as: The Canadian Diabetes Society, the CNIB; and The Canadian Hearing Society to name a few causes that our efforts support to make life better for others less fortunate.

This is an excellent family event with something available for all ages. Children’s mini-golf, and the popular mini-tour train provide popular entertainment for all ages.
