In 1904, David Evans Strickler, of Tassel Pharmacy in downtown Latrobe, Pa., invented sundaes at the pharmacy’s soda fountain. (Yep, same Latrobe known for its famous friends and neighbors, golf legend Arnold Palmer and Fred Rogers of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood of Make-Believe”!) News of his banana-based sundae spread quickly and the recipe was published in 1907. He later purchased the pharmacy and named it after himself.
Celebrate the classic ice cream dish in its birthplace at the The Great American Banana Split Celebration in Latrobe, August 23-25, 2019.
Enjoy games, crafts, and face painting. Bring your appetite or watch the spectacle at the Eat ‘N Park Pie Eating Contest, where contestants will dig in to eat an entire banana cream pie. Don’t want an entire pie? Head to the food court and grab a bite from the wide variety of food trucks. Stroll through the car cruise, and check out the awesome line up of classic cars.
Shop for fresh fruits, vegetables, and other goods at the Farmers’ Market. Peruse the crafts on Vendor Color Dash Banana Split CelebrationRow, too!
Take part in the 5K Banana Run and receive a free t-shirt. The Color Dash presented by Saint Vincent College, another 5K race, will also be a blast.
