The South Coast will once again be going bananas this September.

After a two-year break due to the pandemic, the Port of Hueneme’s Banana Festival will be back this year.

It’s set for Saturday, September 24th, and will feature banana-themed food and drink, as well as entertainment, port tours, and harbor boat rides.

The Port of Hueneme is the main West Coast hub for banana imports, with more than 600,000 tons of the fruit passing through Ventura County annually.
