6th Annual Banana Festival
August 8, 2015 @ 10:00 am – August 9, 2015 @ 7:00 pm
The 6th Annual Sacramento Banana Festival’s theme is Banana Viva Las Vegas! The festival celebrates culture, diversity, art, food, health, and community. Activities will include: live entertainment, delicious banana dishes, a chef challenge, a 5k run or walk, a health pavilion, carnival games and rides, a fashion show, exhibits, and much more.
In conjunction with the Sacramento Banana Festival, Correctional Workers Who Care will host its 5th Annual 5K Soul Stroll for Health. The walk will promote community wellness and bring attention to the issue of infant mortality in the African American community.
The event benefits the National Academic Youth Corps, which provides art and educational programs for over 15,000 youth and adults every year right here in Sacramento, as well as over a dozen other worthy local charities.
