Annual Ice Cream Social

Guests of all ages are invited to celebrate the longstanding tradition of a community ice cream social in Aspen! The free event features music, a presentation of “A Briefly Complete History of Aspen” (a 45-minute crash course in Aspen history featuring song, dance, and character presentations), and most importantly, ice cream bowls replete with toppings! Boozy milkshakes for adults are available for a small fee. Since the mining era in Aspen, ice cream socials have been a popular summer gathering in the community.

This year’s event featuring free ice cream is made possible by sponsors Obermeyer Wood Investment Counsel with ice cream provided by Paradise Bakery.

Please walk, bike, bus, or carpool. Limited parking in the West End neighborhood. ADA parking only onsite.
