If you’re a sweet potato pie lover, you won’t want to miss the 26th Annual Sweet Potato Festival, which occurs on Saturday, Feb. 14 at Sacramento’s Samuel C. Pannell Community Center. The event, which is free to the public, not only offers sweet potato pies made by local chef Richard Pannell and sweet potato ice cream from Gunther’s, there’s even a sweet potato pie contest (see here for entry form) available for motivated pie bakers. The family-friendly festival, presented by the Sacramento Valley Section of The National Council of Negro Women, runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and also features a variety of community entertainment acts and a raffle.
