Who doesn’t love a good festival?? I’m a bit of a festival fanatic and the Gilroy Garlic Festival just might be one of the best! Here are a few suggestions if you are planning to attend…

1. Purchase the weekend special event “Camp Night” package with Gilroy Gardens! This is a great deal! Visit the world-famous Gilroy Garlic Festival on Saturday, then camp overnight at Gilroy Gardens Theme Park and enjoy the Theme Park on Sunday! The package includes three meals, Garlic Festival admission for Saturday, and Gilroy Gardens theme park admission on Sunday! Be sure to buy tickets early because they mail you the Garlic Festival tickets, the park tickets are printable.

The Camp Night is a great, cost-effective option. We paid about $60/person for the whole package plus purchased Fast Lane passes for $20/person to skip the lines (they came in handy through the day but weren’t needed in the morning).  We were able to make a weekend out of the trip and saved on a hotel, not to mention the money that would have been spent on food and parking. Campground amenities included large grass fields (bring your own tent), maintained restrooms (no showers), a covered picnic area, well-lit walkways, nearby parking (parking included in price) and 24-hour security. This was a great first camping trip for Tanner!
