The Brisbane Ice Cream Festival has finally returned to West End after a hiatus in 2020, and with the festival comes the gathering of a vast assortment of soft serves, gelato, popsicles and other cool desserts!

From April 17-18, you’ll be able to treat your taste buds to some unconventional-yet-delectable serves and scoops from some of the best ice cream vendors in West Village. 

And the best part? The tickets are FREE! With the event running the entire weekend, interested participants can register for any of three two-hour session slots per day. On both days, slots begin at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. This year, there’ll be an additional 5:00 p.m. time slot on Saturday.

A Little Something For Everyone

Are dietary restrictions getting in the way of a good time? Don’t worry. The Brisbane Ice Cream Festival’s got you covered. There will be dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan options available to any and all who attend the festival on either day; and because tickets are free, you’ll have a little more cash to treat yourself with. 

Children under the age of two will also be able to enter the festival, no ticket required, so be sure to bring the entire family!

Hurry, Limited Registration Means Limited Slots! 

Though festival tickets don’t cost any money, registration is still mandatory due to the COVID-19 crowd measures put in place by the Queensland Government. As a result, the number of entries is limited. 

If you were too late to nab a ticket, then fear not! You could always make a post on the Brisbane Ice Cream Festival’s Facebook event page, where those who do have tickets but can no longer make it, can offer you theirs.
