Kids, Food, and Clowns at DooF-a-Palooza
DooF-a-Palooza: A Unique Family Food Festival
www.foodbackwards.com DooF-a-Palooza aims to educate kids about sustainable food.
Where: Jack London Square
When: Sun., May 22, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
The rundown: Farmers, chefs, magicians, and clowns all sharing a stage? Yep, DooF-a-Palooza, the "food educational experience," is back for a third run, this year in a larger space at Jack London Square. Your little Tusks and Perillos will thank you for introducing them to hands-on food activities with names like "shrimp splash," "throw dough," and "mega-pop challenge." Foodie mom heartthrob Joey Altman, Cal Peternell of Chez Panisse Café (what, you thought the Alice wouldn't somehow be represented here?), and, yes, Violet the Clown will all be on hand to lead cooking demos highlighting the healthy and the sustainable.
