    Wake up and smell the garlic

    What would food be without garlic? A lot less tasty, for starters.

    Fortunately, that’s not a world we have to contemplate. And better yet: You can enjoy garlic in its many forms at the 16th annual Garlic Festival held this weekend at Olde Mistick Village.

    So of course chefs will be whipping up and selling garlic-happy dishes, but there will be more, too: farms will be on hand, as well as crafters, artists and artisans, and musicians.

    Garlic Festival, 11 a.m.- 7 p.m. Sat. and 11 a.m-6 p.m. Sun., Olde Mistick Village, 27 Coogan Blvd., Mystic; oldemistickvillage.com.
