I'll post more details later - and hopefully get some discussion and  
advice going - of the challenges we've faced as a festival that  
promotes local foods, vital rural communities, sustainable farming  
and a healthy environment.  I know some of you have been through  
comparable situations.  For the moment, though, we're in the "council  
has advised me not to discuss . . ." phase.  The end result is that  
we are leaving the Wright County Fairgrounds - our home for our first  
three years.

I did want to let you know at least this much, that MN Garlic  
Festival is, indeed, moving!

New date: August 15th, 2009, 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.
New Location:  McLeod County Fairgrounds in Hutchinson, MN

There is some more information on the MN Garlic Festival Fans  
Facebook site, if you do that sort of thing;  and the official  
website (www.sfa-mn.org/garlicfest) will be updated soon.
