The annual Banana Split Festival in Wilmington, Ohio celebrates the birthplace of the banana split with a wonderful weekend festival the second weekend of June.
UPDATE : Banana Split Festival on Hiatus for 2022
What's a festival without great food? Expect Americana at its best and all the foods you would have expected to see back in the 50s and 60s. Of course, the build-your-own banana split reigns supreme.
Make-Your-Own Banana Split Booth
One of the highlights of the Banana Split Festival is the make-your-own banana split booth. The choices begin once you are in line.
How many dips of ice cream do I want - 1, 2, or the traditional 3 scoops? Should it be chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, or ... one of each!? Grab your banana and on to the topping bar for a choice of chocolate, strawberry, pineapple, or caramel topping. And don't forget the chopped nuts, whipped cream, and cherries on top!
Now dig in - Yum, Yum!!
Games for all ages can be enjoyed at the festival. It's really a street fair in nature - just good old fashioned fun. Remember the dunking booth and the fish pond? We've got it all for your family's fun. Added to inflatables, pony rides, a petting zoo and much more, your children won't want to leave!
