Beat the heat in the tastiest way possible when the annual Ice Cream Festival comes back to Melbourne. The team from the chocolateries and ice creameries in Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula and Great Ocean Road have created a whopping 144 flavours for you to choose from. Savour it all over 12 indulgent days, from Wednesday February 9 to Sunday February 20.
Ice Cream Festival
This delicious Ice Cream Festival is brought to you from the same team that did the Brownie Festival and the Hot Chocolate Festival last year. Take a drive out to any of the three locations this summer and enjoy all the beautiful artisan flavours of ice cream they have to offer.
12 new flavours will be introduced every day for you to enjoy, adding up to a massive 144 ice cream flavours over the course of the festival. Will you opt for something classic, or try something new, like Aperol Spritz or blueberry boba bubble tea? Everyone will be able to have fun at this festival, as there will be dairy-free/vegan, egg-free and gluten-free options too.
If you’d like a glimpse behind the curtain, try a Tasting Session. Over 40 minutes, you’ll try 12 different ice cream flavours in the private tasting room, and pair it with your own fun toppings to take home. Bookings are essential, and sessions are $24 per person.
There will also be ice-cream inspired desserts and beverages to try in the café, and Ice Cream Festival Picnic Boxes to enjoy on the picturesque grounds.
Entry to this festival is free. Ice creams are $5.20 for a single scoop, and $7.40 for double scoop, cones and cups.
