Doof-a-Palooza – Sunday, May 22, 2011 – 10AM-5PM

The 3rd annual DooF-a-Palooza, a free admission, food and family festival for children of all ages and adults, is happening next May at beautiful Jack London Square. Like the wildly successful prior two festivals held 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.

20,000-30,000 people discover first-hand how the Bay Area’s best food purveyors, farmers, and organizations called ‘Sourcerers’ bring their magic to our tables. Be a Sourcerer! Got a food activity that’s fun for kids? An idea for one? Or want to brainstorm a brilliant way to share what’s incredible about the food you make? We encourage all DooF-a-Palooza participants to become Sourcerers and share in the journey of food from its source. Everyone gets to play in the fun!

A few of the more popular activities from prior DooF-a-Paloozas:
• A live Kitchen Sink Cook-Off with Chef Joey Altman
• Backwards pizza making
• Scavenger hunting at the local farmer’s market
• Recycling Stinky Trash into Black Gold
• Building your own yogurt parfaits
• Squishing squid and sustainable shrimp with the Monterey Bay Aquarium
• Rolling your own rice paper Vietnamese spring rolls
• Baking cookies in a solar powered oven
• Learning to make butter in a soccer ball
