Good news for ice cream lovers! Coming up this weekend is a festival you won’t want to miss. The Utica Sertoma Ice Cream Festival will take place May 27-29 in Utica, Ohio, just an hour east of Marysville!

You can prove your love for ice cream by participating in ice cream eating contests or just sit back and enjoy the live entertainment. 90 local artisans will set up shop, and 400 classic cars will be on display as part of the classic car show.

Utica is also the home of local ice cream makers Velvet Ice Cream. They’ll have dozens of their delicious ice cream flavors on tap at the festival, so you can try as many as you like. You can also visit Velvet Ice Cream’s factory and mill across the street from the festival to learn more about ice cream making and take a tour of the Mill’s beautiful grounds.
