Discover the chilliest fest this week with us!
Czech this out
As you might guess from the name, the Ice Cream festival is devoted to people who love this chilly refreshment on a hot summer day. Interestingly, the fest has been in operation since 2015, and, so far, it is the largest festival of its kind in Central Europe!
We are so proud of the organizers and their success over the past six years: plenty of healthy and unforgettable emotions, various types of ice cream, and a great place to meet with friends.
What is more, the festival contributed to charity approximately 120,000 Kč! A wonderful gesture for people in need.
Ice Cream Festival Program
Like every festival, this one is no different – it will be accompanied by wonderful live music.
Anna Julie Slováčková will start her debut at 11.00 AM, followed by some DJ sets from famous Prague musicians.
The grand opening of the festival will take place on the 28th of August, 2021 (Sunday, fun day) at 10.00 A.M. There, you can have a choice of what to do, except tasting the ice cream. For instance, there will be a children’s zone with face painting activities and a sports zone where you can play football with your pals.

When the festival was only established, there were only instances of the Czech local ice cream. As the venue grew popular, organizers collaborated with Austria, Poland, and Slovakia ice cream factories.
In other words, you can have a gastronomic degustation at the fest. Rate the ice cream like a professional Michelin gourmand in the comments!
There are different types of ice cream presented as well. No one will be left behind. For example, you can try vegan, organic, gelato, yogurt flavored, sorbets, and even ice rolls and ice lollies.
