In the United States, Gelato Festival America selects the best gelato chefs through 24 touring festivals, spread over 3 years, with an American final in 2021 that will grant access to the world finals.

The mission of Gelato Festival America is to spread the culture of Artisan Italian Gelato. Born in Florence, Italy, Gelato Festival is an all-star line up where the biggest names in Gelato making compete against one another with a one-time flavor they have created just for the festival.

The event gives visitors the opportunity to experience the secrets of high-quality gelato, learn about the production techniques by watching the Artisans at work in the ‘laboratory’, and taste all the competing flavors, voting for their favorite one.

The Gelato School is where show cooking demonstrations revolving around the world of gelato take place as well as fun activities for both adults and kids.

After four events in 2017, Gelato Festival returns to the US with eight festivals all around the Country: Jersey City, Boulder, Chicago, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Dallas, Scottsdale and Tucson. Artisans and chefs will go through a rigorous selection process in order to compete in one of these eight stages. with a unique, one-time flavor specially created for the Gelato Festival. DETAILS
