Brisbane’s now-infamous Ice Cream Festival is back for its third year, this year bringing together purveyors of the finest gelati, popsicles, sundaes and cones under one convenient roof for not one, but two glorious days.
If you were one of the lucky lickers who managed to nab a ticket, you’ll remember the luxurious high of drifting from stall to stall on a moveable feast where every course is dessert. If you missed out, luck is on your side because this incredible event is coming back this March for an entire weekend and promises to be bigger and better than both previous years.
The 2019 iteration will once again bring some brilliant and fantastical creations from Brisbane's best creative minds, featuring such delicacies as gelato bao, pavlova ice cream curls, and gelato-stuffed cannoli.
The Saturday and Sunday events will emulate last year’s structure, with three two-hour sessions in which to get your fill of the frosty goodness, beginning at either 11am, 1pm, or 3pm, but 2019 will bring the first 'Up Late' event, mixing dessert with ice cream cocktails and DJ sets until the small hours.
Tickets for Up Late are $49, and weekend passes are absolutely free, but registration is crucial so book your spot here ASAP.
