Ice Cream Showdown

September 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

| $10

Maynards Market is hosting its third annual Ice Cream Showdown: A friendly competition where local ice creameries compete for the title of best ice cream in town. This downtown celebration brings Tucson together to taste the latest in ice cream and gelato flavors while raising money for Ben’s Bells. Last year the event raised nearly $5,000.

Join Maynards Market and our local creameries in helping Ben’s Bells on their mission “to inspire, educate, and motivate people to realize the impact of intentional kindness, and to empower individuals to act according to that awareness, thereby strengthening ourselves, our relationships and our communities.”

Tickets to the Ice Cream Showdown, which get you 10 tastes, are just $10 and are limited so get yours early as the event sold out last year. A portion of each ticket sold goes directly to Ben’s Bell, and additional tastings are available for $1 each, with all extra tasting sales benefiting Ben’s Bells. The festival will have food available for purchase.

This year’s ice cream professionals are:

• Brushfire BBQ Co.
• The Cup Cafe
• HUB Ice Cream Factory
• Isabella’s Ice Cream
• Maynards Market
• Sullivan’s Eatery & Creamery
• Tazzina di Gelato
• Screamery Ice Cream

Be sure to bring your little ones: Ben’s Bells is bringing coloring books, kindness coins, and Kind Crusader super heroes. We also heard Frozen princesses Elsa and Ana are visiting the festival.

Show up for the showdown on Saturday, September 10 from 6 to 8p.m. Tickets are on sale now at Maynards Market or maynardstucson.com.
