American Civic Association 17th Annual Garlic Festival

Up to the Minute

BINGHAMTON, NY – This summer, the American Civic Association will celebrate its mission to embrace diversity and promote cultural understanding through our annual Multi Ethnic Garlic Festival.

For over 80 years, the American Civic Association has welcomed immigrants and refugees to the Southern Tier and helped them succeed in their new community.

The organization’s motto is “building bridges of understanding across cultures” because of the
focus on highlighting and celebrating each individual’s unique background and culture.

In that spirit, this August the American Civic Association will host its largest yearly event: 17th Annual
Multi-Ethnic Garlic Festival.

Date: Saturday August 28, 2021

The 17th Annual Multi-Ethnic Garlic Festival will be a day full of cultural performances from around the world, ethnic and garlicky foods, and a large variety of local garlic, produce and craft vendors!
