Thank you for making the Inaugural Florida Ice Cream Festival a tremendous success. As a first time event held in Florida, we expected attendance to be between 3,000 – 7,000. But what happened surprised everyone …. Approximately 30,000 people attended …. more than any first time event held in Lakeland. We are so proud of our community and its support for our affordable family event.
We are pleased to announce that this year’s Florida Ice Cream Festival will be held at the SUN ‘n FUN grounds on April 12-13, 2014. SUN ‘n FUN is known for its annual “Fly-in” and airshow each year and is located at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport. It is a beautiful location that has the capacity to handle the large crowds expected at the Florida Ice Cream Festival.
With better parking, more capacity, more ice cream and food vendors, more activities and community support, we look forward to seeing you at this family event!
