Returning for its fifth instalment in 2022 following four years of sold-out fun, Brisbane Ice Cream Festival is back in a new format and, the cherry on top, it’s under a month away.
Over three weekends, Brisbane Ice Cream Festival will pop up at West End’s West Village precinct (the original home of Peters Ice Cream), kicking off with a Chef’s Playground event on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 March. Expect a dessert-inspired degustation of savoury and sweet dishes created by noted local chefs Philip Johnson, Matt Golinski and William Wallace under the stars on West Village’s lush The Common lawn. Tickets are $129pp and available here.
For the smallest ice cream-lovers in the family, the weekend of Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 March will offer a new Sundae Funday event, hosting hands-on craft activities and workshops at 10am, 12pm and 2pm. Tickets are $10 per child, and include a scoop from West Village’s popular Anita Gelato.
Come Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 April, West Village will host a scaled-down Ice Cream All Weekend version of the Brisbane Ice Cream Festival (without all the stress of trying to secure tickets), welcoming past favourites and new finds including Ungermann Brothers and Roll It Ice Cream Co, while all of the precinct’s retailers will be offering special ice cream creations alongside their regular offering between March 18 and April 3 in case you can’t make it to the dedicated weekend events.
