Vendor: National Banana Pudding Festival

A Sweet Celebration with a Heart

The National Banana Pudding Festival emerged from the collective vision of twelve passionate community volunteers in Centerville, Tennessee. Initially inspired by a desire to support victims of disasters, fires, tornadoes, and floods, this dedicated group formed the festival as a nonprofit corporation in September 2009. Over time, they realized the festival could serve a broader purpose, providing a platform for numerous nonprofits to raise essential funds for their causes. Each year, more organizations join, turning the festival into a cherished event filled with purpose and fun.

The two-day event boasts diverse entertainment on multiple stages, a charming Little Nanner's Children's Area for the young ones, and Banana Land, an exciting spot for the older kids to go bananas. With a variety of food and craft booths, there's something to pique everyone’s interest, ensuring a vibrant, engaging experience for the whole family.
