The 2010 Banana Festival focuses a lot on culture, particularly the cultures that have traditionally used the Banana in thier cultural art, foods and traditions. These include cultures from Central and South America, the Caribbean, Central and Eastern Africa, India, South East Asia, and the Pacific Islands. Through art, music, speakers and culinary treats, the Banana Festival will expose you to wonderful uses of the Banana from around the world.
Community is the third components of the 2010 Banana Festival. The festival will offer events, exhibits, and competitions that will focus on building and strengthening community. One way we aim to do so is by having 50 local non-profit and community oriented organizations available with thier information free to the public.
