Ice Cream Eating

Ice Cream Eating

Sponsored by H-E-B

Now when we say that we bring the frosty treat fanatics, we mean it!

Festival goers devour a series of ice cream eating challenges—How fast can you eat a pint? A half-gallon? Special categories for “under 12” eaters, “Look Ma, No-Hands!” popsicle eating, and more!  Winners will receive an Austin Ice Cream Festival commemorative spoon (and a good ole fashioned hose down!). Contests will take place in the Main Pavilion.
