RelayPlay - San Diego Ice Cream Festival

Scoop San Diego is hosting its 3rd Annual Scoop San Diego Ice Cream Festival in Balboa Park on Saturday, May 22 from 11 a.m.-6 p.m., and they are sweetening the deal by making it America’s first drive-thru ice cream festival.

Relax in the comfort of your car and enjoy delicious samples as you scoop your way through 25 local ice cream and gelato shops, including Salt & Straw, Hammond’s Gourmet Ice Cream, Mr. Trustee, GelatoLove, and more. There will even be three stops serving up doggy ice cream, because we can’t forget about our four-legged friends.

Located at Inspiration Point Parking Lot at Balboa Park

One hundred percent of net proceeds from the event will be donated to Feeding San Diego. In addition, attendees can donate a nonperishable food item (no glass, please) that will go to a Feeding San Diego agency partner to help those facing hunger. Every guest who donates an item to the food drive will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win prizes.

Scoop San Diego is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses ice cream as a catalyst for social change. Every year, the organization hosts an ice cream and gelato festival to fundraise for a local non-profit dedicated to serving communities in need.
