Sacramento Banana Festival
On August 10–11, the paths of William Land Park will come alive with all things banana for the fourth annual Sacramento Banana Festival. Taking a look at the banana’s influence as a staple food in Asia, Africa, and the Americas, the festival will incorporate activities celebrating those cultures, including reggae music and international dance performances. Banana-themed art exhibits, an open-air marketplace, and food vendors entice the other six senses near the music. Patrons can opt for the Power Soul Stroll 5K or munch on plantain chips, banana teacakes, or frozen bananas before working up a sweat in banana Zumba lessons. To close out the day, banana enthusiasts can watch kids aged 0–17 in the banana pageant or walk down the banana bread path, tasting recipe samples and raising money for local organizations.
