Come join us for the Annual National Banana Pudding Festival and Cook-off, celebrating the ultimate comfort food, banana pudding. The National Banana Pudding Festival is the first weekend in October located near Grinder’s Switch Rail Station, the inspiration for Minnie Pearl’s fictitious town. Sarah Cannon, aka Minnie Pearl was born and raised on the Duck River across from Grinder’s Switch in Hickman County TN. The Banana Pudding Festival is the brain child of twelve local Red Cross volunteers seeking a way to earn money to cover the costs of helping victims of disasters, fires, tornadoes and floods. In September 2009 this fun lovin’ dozen incorporated the National Banana Pudding Festival as a non-profit corporation and set about bringing the dream to reality. Come and help us celebrate! This one-day event will include, in addition to a national cook-off for the best banana pudding in America, two stages with entertainment, a children’s area, food and craft booths, and the Puddin’ Path where you can sample lots of banana puddin’ and so much more. Come enjoy good Southern Comfort Food...come taste the sweetness....
