Thousands Join in Celebration of the 7th Annual Port Banana Festival   

On September 29, over 12,000 people, breaking attendance records, visited the Port on Saturday to celebrate its 7th Annual Banana Festival. The festival showcased the Port’s significant reach around the world in international commerce and highlighted the Port’s commitment to environmental stewardship and humanitarian work in Guatemala.
Traversing the festival grounds, visitors learned the Port is one of the nation’s top ten automobile ports and a gateway to move the crops grown here in Ventura County to global trading partners. Of course, the banana was a big part of the show, being the Port’s highest volume import.
“Today is not just about enjoying the wonderful banana treats, it is so much more,” explained Oxnard Harbor District President, Mary Anne Rooney. “It is about interfacing with our local community, sharing with them all of the new and exciting projects and initiatives taking place at their Port, and thanking our customers who invest in our community year over year.”
