Tennessee is famous for its banana pudding and banana pudding pie. They hold an annual banana pudding festival each year.
In the National Banana Pudding Festival, there is a cook-off for the best banana pudding in America.
There is also a Puddin' Pat where you can sample banana pudding made by local nonprofit organizations.
The festival began as a way to earn money to help victims of disasters, fires, tornadoes, and floods.
Along with the delicious banana pudding, it's helping nonprofits earn much-needed funds for their causes as well.
