Ice Cream Festival

Presented by:

Canada Agriculture and Food Museum

Learn about the journey from cow to cone by joining us at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum's annual Ice Cream Festival! You can practise your milking technique on the museum's wooden cow, and learn how dairying technology now includes milking machines and robotic milkers. Help make ice cream with an old-fashioned manual ice cream maker, then taste the fruits of your labour. Step back in time to the 1950s and discover the history of ice cream scoops and sundaes, including a sample of this delicious treat. Other activities include crowd-pleasing performances by Capital Jumpers, a dance party with DJ Rico, and a photo booth! Also on the schedule are samplings of sorbet floats, and a kids' corner with crafts and games. A variety of food services and local ice cream vendors will be on site. Don't miss this tasty treat of a day! Visit our website for the full list of activities!
