Doof-A-Palooza sounded like a storybook character to me when I first heard about it. It’s actually a kid-friendly family event that’s fun for the entire family. It’s a totally free celebration of healthy and sustainable food. My good friend Michelle Stern from What’s Cooking With Kids will be there cooking on stage. The event this year is tomorrow (Sunday, May 22, 2011) from 10 AM – 5 PM at Jack London Square in Oakland. Here are some details on the event:
The 3rd annual DooF-a-Palooza, is a free admission food and family festival for children of all ages and adults. Like the wildly successful prior two festivals at Google Headquarters, DooF-a-Palooza, a food-backwards, table-to-source, food educational experience, includes contests, games, entertainment and fun hands-on activities with growers, chefs, purveyors, businesses, and cookbook authors all filmed and streamed live online.
Check out DooF-A-Palooza’s website HERE for more detailed information.
Stay tuned for our family’s adventures there and photos. It’s our first year going and I can’t wait!
A Quick Note From Noel: Just a quick announcement to let you all know that I am having my site designer Christa Jensen from Affordable Web Designs make some improvements to my site to allow my readers a more pleasurable experience when visiting the kitchen. If you happen to stop by and can’t find something on the site– not to worry it will be back to normal soon!
