Over Forte will play traditional jazz, Dixieland, pop, blues and swing music at Picnic in the Park from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday in Central Park, Fourth and C streets.

Formed in 1996, the band is a Picnic in the Park favorite that also performs at the Woodland Farmers Market, the Yolo County Fair, Woodland’s Stroll through History and the Woodland Park and Recreation Concert series. Band members hail from Davis, Woodland, Dixon and Sacramento.

Visitors can buy dinner from food vendors or bring a picnic to enjoy on the plaza or lawn. Beer and wine may be purchased from the Davis Soroptimists, with proceeds benefiting local charities.

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

For more information, call the market office at (530) 756-1695 or visit www.davisfarmersmarket.org.
