Amazing fun for the whole family.
The Story of the All-American Dessert that Started in Latrobe
It started in 1904 with an experiment by a local man, David Strickler. Today it is the official dessert of Pennsylvania and an iconic part of American culture. The Great American Banana Split Festival has been a staple in Latrobe since 2013 and, this year we celebrate its 10-year anniversary!
