Gelato Festival is a Treat for the Whole Family (Giveaway!)

America’s capital may be associated with heated politics, but cold, creamy gelato is a bipartisan treat! For this reason, America has voted to once again bring the Gelato Festival back to the capital, where City Market at O will host Gelato Festival Washington DC.

Join in September 7-8 for delicious gelato made by world-class local and visiting artisans. A wristband grants you all you can eat gelato, the opportunity to participate in all festival activities, and a vote for your favorite gelato! The chef with the most votes will continue their gelato journey in the Gelato Festival World Masters 2021.

Purchase tickets by September 5 for $25/adult, $10/child (free for age 2 and under). You can also get three tickets for the price of two if you buy in advance! Admission at the door is $30/adult.
