Sacramento Banana Festival

1401 Sutterville Road,
Sacramento, CA 95822

Sacramento Banana Festival is a two-day family-friendly multicultural celebration of the diverse cultures that use the banana as food, held each August at William Land Park in Sacramento. The Banana Festival features live entertainment on two stages, a chefs’ challenge, multi-cultural exhibits, marketplace, line dancing, pageants, fashion show, art exhibits, exhibits by dozens of local businesses and community organizations, arts and crafts activities, kiddie carnival rides, and lots of banana cuisine.

Now celebrating its tenth year, the Sacramento Banana Festival was established in 2009 as a community celebration of arts and culture and as a fundraiser for the National Academic Youth Corp., which serves some 15,000 Sacramento-area youth and adults annually with arts education and cultural awareness programming. In addition Banana Festival was designed to be a catalyst to support other local non-profits and their efforts to benefit our communities. Here is a list of the non-profit organizations that participated in Sacramento Banana Festival in 2018; stay for an updated 2019 list, coming soon. Please take time to read more about our partner organizations below and visit their websites.
