Building on the momentum of a successful seven years, the Port of Hueneme is again hosting the “Banana Festival at the Port” and is inviting the community to celebrate with us! The Port of Hueneme, one of California’s busiest seaports for general cargo, handles over $11 billion in cargo value annually and is among the top U.S. ports for automobiles and fresh produce. The Oxnard Harbor District began over 80 years ago with a mission to provide California’s central coast agricultural community with an ocean link to the global market. Today, the Port handles bananas and tropical fruit as well as additional cargo including auto imports and exports, liquid bulk fertilizer, farm, and other heavy equipment. Operations at the port generate more than 20,000 jobs locally (direct, indirect, and induced) and infuses more than $2.2 billion dollars every year into the community. Learn more about the Port at PortofHueneme.org.
The Banana Festival draws significant participation at every level with an experienced management team, local participation of restaurants and businesses, support from area officials, crazy fun banana-themed foods, special interactive port exhibits and onsite tours.
