Celebrate Summer at Westfield’s Ice Cream Carnival!

Looking for some fun for the August long weekend? Grab your friends and family and head to Westfield Heritage Village for the annual Ice Cream Carnival. This special event will take place on Sunday August 6 and Monday August 7 from 10 AM to 4 PM, with lots to see, do and taste.

At the Ice Cream Carnival, you can discover how this delicious, traditional summer treat is made the old-fashioned way. Westfield volunteers will be working hard at six wooden ice cream churns, preparing cool and delicious homemade ice creams for you to sample. These ice creams are made using traditional recipes with real cream, fresh fruit and other delicious ingredients. Feeling energetic? You are welcome to roll up your sleeves and help with the cranking!

If the free samples have you craving more, there are lots of other reasonably priced treats available throughout the day. Pie and ice cream, that classic combination, will be available at the Ironwood Hall for just $4. Crazy Cravings ice cream truck will be serving cones, sundaes, slushies and milkshakes. Traditional carnival foods – bottled soda, ice cream novelties, Saratoga chips, Pickle-on-a-Stick, cool lemonade, baked treats and old fashioned candy will be available for purchase at the General Store. The Copetown Lions will also be serving up their delicious food in the picnic area. And don’t forget, you are always welcome to bring your own picnic to Westfield.

A special highlight of this event is the Edwardian-style carnival. Step back in time as you walk among the colourful tents and test your skill at traditional games and amusements. You can visit with the fortune teller, take your picture on the moon, race your horse to the finish line and much, much more. This is fun for all ages, and you can play as much as you like - no tickets required! You won’t want to miss having a ride on the amazing steam traction engine.
