Break out the picnic blankets again.

It’s time for the annual return of Picnic in the Park — the family-friendly celebration that takes place every Wednesday evening in Central Park, from spring through fall. The 2011 season is organized by the Davis Farmers Market and sponsored by the Davis Food Co-op.

The event, which runs from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m., features live music, an international food fair, children’s entertainment and, of course, the farmers market.

Mad Dash headlines opening day with rock ‘n’ roll dance music of the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. Members are Rachelle Byrne, vocals; David Meyer, bass and vocals; Dorothy Sills, saxophone and vocals; Michael Gregory, guitar and vocals; Steve Artz, drums; and Valerie Marston, vocals. The band has played at several wineries and festivals, including Hot August Nights in Reno, the Peach Festival in Marysville and Peggy Sue’s Cruise Car Show in Petaluma.

The food fair offers picnickers a wide array of dinner specialties to tantalize worldly palates, including El Mariachi Taqueria (Mexican cuisine), Raja Indian Cuisine (Indian nan-wrap cuisine), Kathmandu Kitchen (Indian cuisine), Thai Recipes (Thai cuisine), and East West Gourmet (Afghanistan bolanis and condiments).

Caffé Italia will bring its artisan baking oven on wheels to the park to make “pizzas with a purpose,” benefiting the Davis Farm to School Connection, with toppings sourced from local farmers.

Returning food vendors include The Buckhorn (tri-tip and chicken sandwiches and salads), Ciocolat (burgers, pasta and desserts), Davis Creamery (ice cream in farm-fresh flavors), Fat Face (ice pops in farm-fresh flavors), The Hotdogger (hot dogs, veggie dogs, corn dogs and fresh lemonade), Monticello Bistro (farm-fresh salads and sandwiches), Mustard Seed (salads and sandwiches), Santa Fe Trading Co. (farm-fresh snow cones) and Steve’s Pizza.

Soroptimist International of Davis will sell beer and wine, with proceeds going to local charities.

Children’s entertainment includes pony rides from Pony Ranch Parties, Central Park’s bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing wall, Bouncing Bungalows, face-painting and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.

Spring and late-winter vegetables — asparagus, greens, lettuces, kiwis and strawberries — fill the market, with craft booths at the north end. For more information, call (530) 756-1695 or visit http://www.davisfarmersmarket.org.
