This uniquely named event, was formerly known as Fall Festival of Palate and Palette, a popular fundraiser held by Sts. Peter and Paul Episcopal Church in El Centro for 60 years. The group held its last fall festival in 2019 prior to the pandemic. In 2022, organizers made the decision to pass the beloved event to the I.V. Food Bank.
