ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT ICE CREAM!

We’d be seriously delinquent in our ice cream loving duties if we didn’t take some time to remind everyone about the upcoming 12th Annual Super Scooper All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia on July 3rd, 4th and 5th.

The festival will be held from noon to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The admission price is ONLY $5.00 per person. On Saturday, July 3rd, the festival will also be open from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. to coincide with the free concert and fireworks taking place on the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing. All proceeds benefit the Joshua Kahan Fund to fight pediatric leukemia and the Children’s Hospital Oncology Division. (More details here.)

Over 20 different ice cream and water ice companies will be on hand to dispense their delicious wares, including Turkey Hill. We’re not sure what else you could be doing on that weekend, but the chance to attend an all-you-can-eat ice cream festival for only five bucks AND help out a very worthy cause seems like the best thing you could possibly do!

One of the cool things about the festival is that you get each scoop of ice cream in a new dish and it’s customary for attendees to stack their dishes up and carry them around while they sample various flavors. Sort of the like the gentleman below, who ate 40 scoops at last year’s festival!

    It would be great for me if you could move this festival closer to Washington DC. I would enjoy the ice cream for an entree as well as for dessert. I enjoy any all you can eat anything.

    Wow – Philadelphia is the place to be for the the 4th of July. Sounds like ice cream heaven and I envy those who live close enough to attend.
    Enjoy and I hope you raise a lot of money for such a worthy cause.

  33. Jim in SOMD says:

    You scream! I scream! We all scream for All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream! You just can’t beat Philly on the 4th of July (week end)

  34. Lorraine says:

    That is so Cool to do that.

  35. Jane M says:

    Great way to raise money. Good luck!

  36. QUINT REITZEL says:

    great deal-that is the cost of a container of TH ice cream here in Virginia Beach, Va. I do not think there is 40 scoops in a container

  37. Jeannie says:

    Live just across the river – might cross the bridge and check out this all-you-can-eat ice cream festival,and possibly bring my daughter who’ll be visiting from out of town !!

  38. Mary says:

    My husband has to work that day, but I’ll try to send my son in my place!

  39. Lois Sidelnick says:

    Too far away, but I would if I could. Guess I’ll eat mine right here.

  40. Pat H. Daniel says:

    I loved the Ice cream festival. All the water Ice and all the Ice cream you can eat for $5.00 is still a good deal. I could only eat about 4 1/2 of delicious scoops.

  41. sue hieber says:

    wish i could be there, can you hold one in wichita, ks? call me

  42. Elise says:

    Wow this sounds like my kind of event! Thanks for the info! Happy 4th of July & National Ice Cream Month!

  43. JEFF says:

    What is the Cost of Living in that area of Penn? It just might be worth moving there for the Ice Cream Festival. I’m sure that they do not have take out orders? If there’s Turkey Hill Iced Tea to wash it down, I would have to consider driving distance and cost. ONLY $5.00, are they too generous? I would honestly pay more, especially for charity. Talk about a great thing to sponser. It has to make all involved feel great. KUDOS.

  44. Rita says:

    I live in Michigan but oh how I wish I could attend they would have to put my kids and I out for eating all the Ice Cream

  45. Doug says:

    Maybe TH will sponsor another contest where they will bring a modified ice cream festival to the winners’ neighborhood or workplace?
    I’d love to be the first to enter that contest!!!!

  46. JUDY says:

    Wow I am 3000 miles away and very jealous.

  47. denise lee says:

    Excellent affair..I will be there!

  48. Eric B.From says:

    i have all you can eat ice cream festival every weekend with my Turkey Hill flavors.Thanks!

  49. Linda Nelson and Bruce Stevens says:

    Bruce and I are addicted to Turkey Hill ice cream, and we’re within driving distance from Lancaster Co. (We’re in CT) Bruce is an on-air radio talent and has frequently delivered verbal blogs about my sincere and dedicated love of Turkey Hill Dutch Chocolate. His listeners have responded in kind with their favorites. There’s a real Love Fest here that you didn’t know about!
    Do you have factory tours? I have a birthday coming up, and a road trip for ice cream is just what I need!

    Linda in CT

  50. Ken says:

    I really love your ice cream!

  51. Sue says:

    Thank you for the reminder Turkey Hill! I’m near Philly and will try to get to Penn’s Landing.
    While I love chocolate, vanilla is definitely better choice for topping other foods like pies and cookies.

  52. Steve Bodkin says:

    I could definitely do a lot more than $5 damage to the Penn’s Landing ice cream supply. And to spoon it in for a good cause like fighting pediatric leukemia—all the better!

  53. Sarah Yannes says:

    Me and my siblings will definitely be there on Monday. We we’re rowing in the Independence Day Regatta and after we went to see if it was open but we were there at 10. We decided to get the full effect on Monday.

  54. Mrs K says:

    Oh, what fun! To bad we’ll miss it. We like to eat ice cream, especially Turkey Hill ice cream. :)

  55. Lauren says:

    Well, I meant to comment on here *before* the Ice Cream Festival about how excited I was to hear about it, but I didn’t have a chance to until now. Anyway, I currently live 5 1/2 hours from Philly, but I was going to be in town for the 4th, so I made sure I set aside time to go to the Festival! I was happy to donate to cancer research – and looking forward to the ice cream and water ice, too, of course! Unfortunately, the Festival was so crowded and unorganized that I only got to eat 2 scoops of ice cream and 1 scoop of water ice in about an hour’s time! Hundreds of people were packed under a relatively tiny tent pushing and shoving into even tighter clusters by each table with ice cream or water ice. At the front of each cluster, there tended to be a few people eating ice cream and then taking more, blocking everyone else from getting anything and from moving anywhere. Thankfully, one of the ice cream scoops I did get to eat was Turkey Hill, which made me a little happy. (I went right to one of the Turkey Hill tables first!) I hope that the Festival logistics can be improved in the future. My suggestions – exit/enter lines at each table to help direct the massive crowd, signs posted above each table with what flavors are there to help even more, having scoopers encourage guests to move away from tables once they have gotten ice cream or water ice, and more scoopers and more space if at all possible.
