Gelato Festival at La Encantada

October 27, 2018 - October 28, 2018

$20 – $30

Ticket holders gain full access to Gelato Festival America for one day at the location for which they purchase tickets. Tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for seniors (65+), $25 for kids (3 to 12 years old), and free for children under two years old. Those who purchase tickets for the Gelato Festival online in advance receive a discounted price: $25 for adults and $20 for seniors and kids (must show ID at the gate!).

The all-access ticket will allow them to enjoy a scoop of each of the unique flavors created by the competing gelato chefs, the sponsored flavors, and flavors from Carpigiani’s Gelato University. Ticket holders will be able to vote for their favorite competing gelato flavor, helping to decide the winner for each city. Their voting will comprise 50% of the decision; the rest is in the hands of the technical jury, who will judge the gelato based on presentation, flavor, and structure. Presale tickets can be found online at gelatofestivalamerica.com/ticket and on Eventbrite. Tickets will be sold at each venue as well.

The ticket is an all-access pass to all of the activities and reserved events of Gelato Festival America 2018, listed below.

  • Attend the Gelato School, where award-winning gelato artisans and experts will share what it takes to be a gelato chef and professional.
  • Participate in the Gelato Eating Contest, where the five people to eat five cups of gelato the fastest will win a gallon of gelato!
  • Serve on the Kid’s Jury, where children have the opportunity to question the chefs and vote for their favorite flavor. Know a young foodie who might be interested? Email info@gelatofestivalamerica.com
