Sticky Vikki & the Pinecones bring their rockabilly music to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday. From their humble beginnings at the Trailer Park and No Tell Bar to the bright lights of San Francisco and Los Angeles, the band will get people dancing to songs about trains, laundry and how they need a kiss.

Sticky Vikki & the Pinecones — Steve Namle, drums; Jimi James, guitar and vocals; Vikki Lee, guitar and vocals; and Russ Whitehead, bass and vocals — have shared the stage with Albert Lee, Rambling Jack Elliott and Glen Glenn, and are a Picnic in the Park favorite. Music starts at 5 p.m. and is sponsored and funded by the Davis Food Co-op.

The Davis Farmers Market is open from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Spring produce — asparagus, greens, lettuces, snap peas, avocados, kiwis and strawberries — plus local eggs, honey, wine, beef and lamb fill the market, with crafts at the north end.

A food fair offers a wide array of dinner choices from El Mariachi Taqueria, Raja’s Tandoor, Kathmandu Kitchen, Thai Recipes, East West Gourmet, The Buckhorn, Ciocolat, Farmer’s Kitchen, Davis Creamery, Fat Face, The Hotdogger, Monticello Seasonal Cuisine, Original’s Steve’s Pizza, Upper Crust Bakery, Davis Bread & Desserts, OctoberFeast Bakery, Bare Juices and Kettlepop. Or, guests may bring their own picnics.

Davis Soroptimists will pour wine and beer to raise money for local charities.

Children’s entertainment includes Central Park’s bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bounce houses, face-painting and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
