Salem’s Ice Scream Bowl is back! It’s time to sample some of the best ice cream in the North Shore from some of the many ice cream shops the area has to offer. Salem’s Ice Scream Bowl event will be held on Wednesday, August 9 on the Salem Common from 6:00-7:30 p.m., rain or shine. A Heritage Days favorite, this annual event is a chance to taste some classic flavors and new combinations from the area’s premier ice cream shops.
A few of the homegrown local businesses serving samples at the event will include Captain Dusty’s Ice Cream, Cherry Farm Creamery, Holy Cow Ice Cream Café, Melt Ice Cream, Whimsy’s Sweet Life, and more. Local DJs the Salem Halloween Girls will be spinning some sweet tunes to keep you dancing!
The cost is $6 for adults and $4 for children. Tickets are purchased on site on the day of the event, cash only. A spoon and napkins will be supplied with the purchase of a ticket. All of our materials are recyclable or compostable in an effort to reduce the impact of this popular event.
This year’s Ice Scream Bowl will be directly followed by the Salem Common Neighborhood Association’s Movie Night! The evening’s movie will be “Holes,” starting at 8 pm. Bring a blanket and camp chairs so you can settle in after your ice cream to catch an outdoor movie with your neighbors.
The 2023 Ice Scream Bowl is made possible thanks to the support of Broad Smiles Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, Coon’s Card & Gift Shop, Emporium 32, Jenni Stuart Fine Jewelry, Modern Millie, Silly Bunny, and Witch City Wicks, as well as the generous donation of product and staff time by the participating ice cream shops!
