There’s no better duo than summertime sun and a sweet melty treat! This June, Calgary’s Meals on Wheels wants you to join them in celebrating that with a mouthful – while also doing some good!

From the folks who brought us YYC Hot Chocolate Fest, comes a 9-day event of unique creations, fantastic flavours, and the tastiest toppings in the city.

YYC Summer Scoop Fest kicks off on June 25th and will feature 6 of Calgary’s best and most beloved shops including Holy Cow, Noto Gelator, Milk Ice Cream Shop, Amato Gelato, Lina’s Italian Market, and Righteous Gelato.

Unlike their previous events, however, participants will be granted a passport and challenged to try as many creations as they can in order to win prizes.
