Whether you devour a tub of Ben & Jerry's while bingeing on TV, you try a new flavor every week as a ritual, or devour the tasty treat when temperatures begin to soar, we all have a unique relationship with the cool dessert. And that love affair is about to get serious at this unlimited ice cream festival that should be on your things to do in Seattle radar this summer.
The Seattle All You Can Eat Ice Cream Festival will go down on August 22 and 23 at the Seattle Center. As if two-days of the creamy event weren't enough, you won't have to settle for a single scoop as you'll be able to eat over 60 flavors of them!
Early bird festival tickets are on sale right now for $16 per person, per day. This price includes 13 flavors of ice cream and is good until February 29.
For $23, you'll get an array of 60 flavors that will be available to you to savor. If you don't snag these tickets, no worries. You can buy them at the door for $30. You can find more details on the tickets here.
The best part? You relishing the refreshing treats is for a good cause. Proceeds benefit Food Lifeline, a Seattle-based nonprofit that aids food banks, shelters, and meal programs.
The participating vendors are still in the works, but we're sure we won't be disappointed. Narcity has reached out to the organizers for more information and we'll update this article once it's known.
What we do know though is that there's going to be a little something for everyone: Including dairy-free and vegan varieties.
Aside from the sugar coma that this will probably induce, you can also sample savory fare from food trucks, jive to some live music, show-off your icecream-eating chops at contests, or relax with yard games by Emerald City's iconic Space Needle.
There'll also be a 21+ only bar for your boozy needs if you'd like to make your dessert truly Irish!
While more information about this fest will be released closer to the event, we can't help but think how awfully sweet this is all going to be.
