Ice Cream Festival

Learn about the journey from cow to cone by joining us at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum’s annual Ice Cream Festival! You can practise your milking technique on the museum’s wooden cow, and learn how dairying technology now includes milking machines and robotic milkers. Help make ice cream with an old-fashioned manual ice cream maker, then taste the fruits of your labour. Step back in time to the 1950s and discover the history of ice cream scoops and sundaes, including a sample of this delicious treat.
