National Banana Pudding Festival

Submitted by on September 24, 2010 – 12:34 pmNo Comment

Yum! A festival for the ultimate Southern comfort food takes place October 2, 2010. What, Road Trips Foodies, you haven’t heard? The National Banana Pudding Festival takes place that day in Centerville, Tennessee.

Come taste the sweetness! Head for the Hickman County Agriculture Pavilion, 979 Grinder’s Switch, Centerville, Tennessee. Hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., but there’s bound to be more goodies toward 10 a.m. than by the time 10 p.m. rolls around.

What’s a banana pudding festival without banana pudding? The “Puddin Path” will give you a chance to sample some of the best, and in some cases what can be described as “not your grandma’s banana pudding” — all prepared by non-profit organizations. After you sample the different versions, you can “vote” for your favorite by dropping a dollar or two or three in the voting jar for that organization.

Who makes the best Banana Pudding in the nation? If you believe you do, this is the contest! If it’s your grandma, well it’s time to load her in the car and find out if hers really is the best ever. The winner of the very first National Banana Pudding Cook-Off will receive a cash prize and of course fame awaits!

If the place sounds familiar, you’re a country music fan! Grinder’s Switch is best known as the fictitious town used by “Minnie Pearl” in her comedy routine. There is a rail station still sitting at the site of Grinder’s Switch which Miss Minnie could see across the Duck River from her house when she was growing up. (Of course now the view is blocked by trees) While you’re at the festival wander down and see the old train station.
