Rockwoods Ice Cream Festival and live bands

Get ready for two scoops of fun at The Old Fashioned Ice Cream Festival at Rockwood. Held on Saturday, June 28 and Sunday, June 29, this must-attend event features family fun for everyone. Come experience the flavor and flair of an old-fashioned local fair -- featuring local creameries serving the region's best ice creams. In between licks of delicious, decadent old-fashioned ice cream, check out local restaurants offering up their finest dishes, check out gifts from eco-crafter vendors, and enjoy live music.

I'm suggesting people arrive around 12-1 to enjoy the craft and food vendors, then when done we will meetup near the band. Bring a blanket to sit on, bring the kids and or grandkids!  I WILL TRY TO GRAB A SPOT FRONT AND CENTER OF THE BANDS. 

Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for children. OR get admission for two adults for $5 with the link below for Living Social.

I selected Sunday June 29th, as I think it will be less crowded.  If the forecast isn't favorable we will move it to June 28th!


NOTE: 

YOYO event on 7/28 at 10:00am, but can meet up with June to listen to Club Phred playing at 10:30a.m. and to listen her friend, Kathy Layfield and her "girl band", No Stringz Attached playing at 11:30a.m

    I'm in the middle of a project, and can't quite get away. I may stop by later if I get a chance! Great day for a bunch of ice cream! ( I think they'd lose money on me!)

    Lin: I have been sick with a bad sore throat for over a week which has in the past 2 days turned into a bad cold with dizzy spells, fever and just feeling sick all over. I assume it is a virus that will run its course but am going to my family doc tomorrow. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the festival today. I normally go every year and this is very disappointing. Does anyone else have this?

    Where are you meeting tomorrow? And what time?

    You should park at one of the shuttle locations. Very limited parking at Rockwood during the festival.
    Wonderful weather today at the festival!
    Have fun tomorrow.

  • Wanda D

    Is it easier to park at Rockwood or at one of the shuttled lots, e.g., Mt. Pleasant High School?

    June 28, 2014

  • June

    I will be at the festival on Saturday morning if you want to meet up with me.
    Club Phred should be playing around 10:45 a.m. The Festival opens at 11a.m. They mistakenly scheduled the bands too early. I will be listening to Club Phred at 10:45 a.m. and staying in that area listening to the next band No Stringz Attached.
    Check the website for parking and shuttle bus info. The shuttle buses will start around 10a.m. www.rockwoodicecream.com

  • carolyn s.

    ok, let's divide up...

    one person will buy the tickets to get themselves and another boomer in for five bucks by buying the living social vouchers. Connect with me and I will buy your ice cream cone for getting me in with your voucher!

    good choice for a fun venue!
