Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival Provides Sweet Relief for Summertime

May 28, 2018

By Jackson Prince,

“Here comes the heat. How will I cope?” In Austin, these are daily thoughts during the onset of summertime. In my case, the question is often followed by: “I need a sweet scoop of chocolate chip ice cream.” And/or: “Okay, Google, where’s the nearest snow cone?” And/or: “Just put me in an ice bath already.”


Well, thank ye sweet festival heaven for a most elegant solution: Austin Ice Cream Festival. This coming June 23, 2018, food trucks, ice cream trucks, musicians, dogs, and humans big and small will converge for the twelfth year of one of The Today Show’s “Top Festivals in the Country.”

Bring the Whole Family to Austin Ice Cream Festival

Located at Fiesta Gardens along Ladybird Lake, Austin Ice Cream Festival offers a variety of activities for kids, including: giant Jenga, bouncy castle, rock climbing, dunk tank, bubble zone, water gun target practice, pedestal joust, yard games, and more.

There are also great games for adults, none better than “Watch kid play while I drink this delicious frozen margarita.”
