Scoop Fest

August 6, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Scoop Fest is Jonesborough’s newest event coming to Tennessee’s Oldest Town on Saturday, August 6 from 4 – 8 p.m. Offering over 30 flavors of ice cream to sample along Main Street, the event is the final part of the new TriFESTa series that included previous events Chocolate Fest and Soda Fest. The upcoming family-friendly event offers fun activities for all. While the ice cream tastings do require a ticket, the other scheduled activities are free! Tastings include flavors that range from traditional to unexpectedly delicious, such as chocolate chip, rocky road, sea salt malt cookie crunch, black walnut and peanut butter campfire crunch. “We are very excited to bring another great tasting festival to Historic Jonesborough that appeals to all ages,” organizer Jeff Gurley said. Scoop Fest begins at 4:00 p.m., and a limited number of tickets will be available to purchase at the Courthouse Square beginning at 3 p.m.
Schedule of Events:
Ice Cream Tastings 4:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Cars and Coffee 4:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Live Music 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Candy Bingo 8:00 p.m.
Movies on Main 8:45 p.m.
Vicki Brown, owner of JJ’s Eatery and Ice Cream, located in Downtown Jonesborough, approached the local merchant board (JAMSA) about adding a new summertime event. “Here at JJ’s Eatery & Ice Cream we serve an Americana type menu, and a menu favorite is our ice cream,” Vicki said with enthusiasm. “Who doesn’t like ice cream? So that’s where the idea of a festival celebrating just that came from,” she added.
Scoop Fest will be similar to the popular Chocolate Fest event held in Jonesborough this past February, with each tasting cup requiring one ticket. Ticket packs are available in increments of 15 tickets for $10.00. It is recommended to purchase tickets online as there is a limited amount of tickets available.
