Last year, on a hot August afternoon, the first Ice Cream Showdown was held. It went so well, it seemed only fair to do another. This year, however, we're trying something new and doing it on TWO DAYS in TWO different places. Also, it is a great pleasure to have Stonyfield as the Ice Cream Showdown sponsor, allowing us to donate an even higher percentage of the ticket price than usual.
On Saturday, August 21, in Union Square, Somerville, Ice Cream Showdown North will take place with Stonyfield, Chilly Cow Custard, JP Licks, Christina's, Toscanini's, Picco. This will be in the parking lot next to Grand at 374 Somerville Ave from 2-4 PM. (Participants subject to change.)
On Sunday, August 22, in SoWa, Boston, Ice Cream Showdown South will take place with Stonyfield, Toscanini's, Picco, Batch, Coop's MicroCreamery, Chilly Cow Custard and Christina's. This will be on Harrison Ave as part of the SoWa Art Market from 2-4 PM. (Participants subject to change.)
The only thing better than sampling several different kinds of ice cream is sampling several different kinds of ice cream for a good cause. Ice Cream Showdown is an effort to raise funds for deserving local organizations Lovin' Spoonful, Share our Strength, Somerville Local First, Arts Union, and Community Servings.
