Sticky Vikki and the Pinecones brings their crowd-pleasing rockabilly music to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday, May 7, from 5 p.m. to dark. The market is open 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The band features Jimi James, guitar and vocals; Steve Namle, drums; Vikki Lee, guitar and vocals; and Russ “The Muleskinner” Whitehead, bass and vocals. Their clever and original approach to Americana, country and rockabilly music gets people dancing.

The Davis Food Co-op sponsors the music, and the market’s community partner, Sutter Davis Hospital, sponsors Picnic in the Park.
Bring your own picnic or buy dinner at the food fair, where there is a wide array of choices. Members of Soroptimist International of Davis will pour local beer and wine 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.

Spring produce — asparagus, greens, snap peas, lettuces and strawberries — plus local eggs, honey and meat fill the market, with craft booths at the north end.

For more information, call 530-756-1695 or visit www.davisfarmersmarket.org to see the music schedule for the entire Picnic in the Park season, which continues every Wednesday evening through October.
