Chill out with Slow Food Atlanta on Saturday, June 20th at its 9th annual Ice Cream Social. The local chapter of the international nonprofit invites families to taste classic and creative flavors churned by local chefs.
Come for the fresh fruits and veggies, and stay for the sweet treats. The Ice Cream Social will be held at the Cathedral of St. Philip just after the Peachtree Road Farmers Market, from 12 pm to 2 pm in Child Hall.
This year’s participating restaurants include Beverly Jean Bakeshop; Castellucci Hospitality Group (Double Zero Napoletana, Sugo, The Iberian Pig, Cooks & Soldiers); Community Smith; di Paolo; Empire State South; King of Pops; RO Hospitality (Osteria Mattone and Table & Main); PARISH; Portofino; Queen of Cream Ice Cream + Coffee; Seed Kitchen & Bar and Stem Wine Bar; Seven Lamps; Shake Shack; The Pinewood; The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead; and TRACE Atlanta at W Midtown.
The event is BYOS — bring your own spoon! After tasting the dozens of ice creams and sorbets, guests will cast a vote for their favorite flavor.
Tickets, which include a taste of each flavor and a ballot, are $15 for adults, $5 for children ages 5 to 10 and free for children under five. Click here to purchase tickets online. Tickets will be available at the door until the event sells out.
Proceeds from the Ice Cream Social will benefit Slow Food Atlanta and the Peachtree Road Farmers Market.
