Brisbane Ice Cream Festival
Tongues at the ready, people! All of our frosty dreams have come true – the Brisbane Ice Cream Festival is returning for its fifth year from Saturday March 26 to Saturday April 9. Presented by West Village, the Brisbane Ice Cream Festival will once again take over the historic Peters Ice Cream Factory on Boundary Street for more than two weeks of jam-packed events dedicated to all things sweet, creamy and frozen. With pop-up stalls from some of Brisbane’s coolest dessert masters, the lick-worthy festival will feature ice-cream, gelato, popsicles and everything in between.
Ice-cream seekers can pop into West Village daily for the festival’s Ice Cream All Day and All Night offering, which will feature a host of sweet specials available throughout the whole festival. From ice-cream sandwiches to lip-smacking spiders, some of your old-school favourites from past festivals will be returning as part of the Ice Cream All Weekend mini festival from April 2–3. Sweet-tooths will be able to indulge in Ungermann Brothers gourmet ice-cream burgers and shakes or get rollin’ with Roll It Ice Cream Co’s famous ice-cream creations.
Saturday April 9 will see the return of Chef’s Playground, where an assortment of creative culinary minds will gather to craft a dreamy degustation featuring sweet and savoury interpretations of iconic desserts. Phillip Johnson from e’cco Bistro, William Wallace and Matt Golinski will be lending their talents to the inventive and experimental outing, so be sure to snag a ticket as numbers are limited.
As the sprinkles on top, Brisbane Ice Cream Festival accommodates dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free and vegan dietary requirements – as ice-cream should be enjoyed by all!
Tickets for this year’s Brisbane Ice Cream Festival will be available from Wednesday February 23 – bookmark the festival’s website ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
