7th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival

7th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival

Beat the heat, listen to great music and eat some awesome ice cream at the 7th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival this Sat, Aug 17th, 2013.Nothing goes better with hot summer weather than a cold scoop of ice cream.  Finishing it up before it melts down your arm can be a feat in and of itself.  If you love ice cream (and who doesn't), you're in for a real treat.  Grab your friends and family and head on over to Fiesta Gardens this Saturday for the 7th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival.

What: 7th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival
Where: Fiesta Gardens (2100 Jesse E Segovia St in Austin's Central District)
When: August 17, 2013, 10am to 7pm
Cost: $10 (kids 7 and under are free)

Since Waterloo will be closed for a few years, the Austin Ice Cream Festival needed to find a new home.  Fiesta Gardens fit the bill perfectly.  While ice cream is really good, it's not going to keep you entertained all day.  In addition to the cold yummy treats, several local musicians will be performing throughout the day.  The official lineup for musical entertainment at the 7th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival is:

  • 10:30am - Paul Renna
  • 12pm - Tiarra Girls
  • 1:30pm - Zoe Ann
  • 3pm - Panjoma
  • 4:30pm - Tandem
  • 6pm - Carmeci

All money raised at the 7th Annual Austin Ice Cream Festival will benefit local Austin charities.  Charities helped in the past include Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the Austin Children's Shelter among others.  Have fun while you help raise money for some great causes this Saturday, August 17th at the 7th annual Austin Ice Cream Festival.  Let's all scream for ice cream!
