Banana Split Festival Activities

Banana Split Fest, Wilmington Ohio


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!

We will not back down from our claim! Ohio Reigns Supreme When It Comes To The Banana Split!
