Ice cream festival Sherbeth: evening music event

Hundreds of visitors stroll along the Via Maqueda and Via Vittorio Emanuele, past the ice cream stalls, taste here and there and stop at the stages where rock, classical music or jazz is played.


The Ice Museum opens its doors during the four days, and there are international conferences on the subject, as well as workshops for visitors to learn the high art of ice making.
Also for children: in Piazza Bologni in Baby-Sherbeth.


The highlight of the event is the competition for the best ice cream creation of the year.
Famous gelati from all over the world compete for the favour of the expert jury. The winner in 2015 was local hero Salvatore Cappello with an ice cream made of Madagascar chocolate.
