The Great Americana Banana Split Celebration is August 23-25, 2019 in Downtown Latrobe, PA — where the banana split was invented 115 years ago!

Banana Band Sign-up Open

Calling all instrument-players! If you want to be a part of our celebration’s parade, sign-ups are open for the 2019 Banana Band. No matter what instrument you play, we’d love to have you join us as the band marches around downtown on their way to Valley Dairy via Strickler’s Way to order a split.

Even if you don’t have the gift of playing an instrument, we would still love to see you at the Great American Banana Split Celebration on August 23-25. As you see the Banana Band playing through downtown join in their parade through the street.
