Satisfy your sweet tooth at the Austin Ice Cream Festival on Saturday, August 9 from 10 am – 7 pm at Fiesta Gardens. Enjoy FREE ICE CREAM and lots of other family fun including live music, activities, contests and more.
Admission is free for ages 8 and under and $10 for everyone else. Each attendee entering with paid admission will receive three tickets to redeem with the ice cream vendors of his or her choice. The minimum sample size is 3 oz. Vendors from all over Austin will be selling and/or sampling their tasty treats and some booths, like Blue Bell, will not require a ticket and will hand out free ice cream until they run out!
Kids can let loose in the bounce houses, fly high with the bungee jump and make a new friend at the petting zoo.
Watch people go head-to-head in a Homemade ice Cream Making competition, an Ice Cream Eating contest and a You Scream Ice Cream screaming battle. Get creative with popsicle sticks and you may win a Popsicle Stick Sculpture Award!
