Event Details


The Sacramento Banana Festival will present the

4th annual Banana Festival, Celebrating:

  • Multiculturalism
  • Art
  • Music
  • Food
  • Education
  • Health & Wellness
  • A Alcohol Free Environment

The event is scheduled for August 10, 2013 through August 11, 2013 at William Land Park in Sacramento, California. The yellow fruit has become a star for this festival that finds everything about this yellow fruit "a-peeling." We serve it up in main entrees, beverages, breakfasts and desserts.It's the center of contest and the theme of the 5-krun. The festival brings people together to celebrate community, food and fun! This year's festival will celebrate healthy environment, lifestyles and eating. The event also highlights different cultures in Asia, Africa and the Americas who use the banana as a source of food, art and culture.

Last years 2012 Banana Festival attracted over 7,500 attendees. This year we will collaborate with the

Ventura, Ca. Banana Festival to attract audiences in cities through out Northern California. This collaboration will strengthen our outreach to families

on a regional level as we celebrate America's #1 Fruit: the Banana!
