The Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh and the Davis High School Bands bring their Picnic and Pops performance to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday from 5 to 8:30 p.m. The family-friendly celebration is part of the Farmers Market in Central Park, Fourth and C streets in downtown Davis.

The Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh is the official UC Davis marching band. The band, which has roughly 200 members, plays at both home and away games to cheer on the Aggies, and participates at numerous other community events.

The band’s catalog of more than 130 songs includes campus favorites like the Aggie fight song as well as renditions of popular rock songs, such as Green Day’s “Welcome to Paradise,” Edgar Winter’s “Frankenstein” and Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit.”

Members of the Davis High School Band, Symphonic Band and Jazz Band will join together for the concert, which marks the end of their Spring Band Tour. The group just returned from Victoria, British Columbia, where they performed in the Parliament Building, the Victoria Inner Harbor and Butchart Gardens as part of the annual Victoria Days celebration.

For Picnic and Pops, the band will perform selections from classical and pop music styles, including “Vilia” from Franz Lehar’s The Merry Widow; LeRoy Anderson’s “Irish Washerwoman” and “Bugler’s Holiday”; and selections from the Big Band era’s Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman.

The Picnic and Pops concert is the band’s traditional thank you to the businesses and residents of Davis for their generous support of music education in the Davis public schools.

The Davis Farmers Market is full of seasonal produce, including cherries, strawberries, asparagus, snap peas, bok choy, greens, lettuces, herbs, citrus, carrots and potatoes, plus local free-range eggs, honey, olive oil, jams, dried fruit, nuts, flowers and garden starts.

Craft booths are at the north end of the market.

The food fair offers picnickers a wide array of choices. Caffé Italia will make “pizzas with a purpose,” benefiting the Davis Farm to School Connection, with toppings from local farmers. Other food vendors include The Buckhorn, Ciocolat, Davis Creamery, El Mariachi, Fat Face, The Hotdogger, Kathmandu Kitchen, Monticello Bistro, Mustard Seed, Raja Indian Cuisine, Santa Fe Trading Co., Steve’s Pizza and Thai Recipes.

Members of Soroptimist International of Davis will sell beer and wine, with proceeds benefiting the club’s local charities.

Children’s entertainment includes the bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, Bouncing Bungalows, face painting and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
