We took 3 of our kids to the festival. We only stayed a couple hours, but we had a great time! There was plenty of shade, the shuttles for parking were convenie...nt (even with a double stroller), and prices were manageable, if a little high. We had a fun time. Definitely recommend it for families looking to walk around and check out vendors and eat some goodies! The karate demonstration was fun (and 3/6 of our family have black belts), and it was neat to have live music and crafts to look at. See More

Went for the first time with a friend to help with her two year old twins. They had a great time, played and won toys and got stickers and had a caricature don...e. And had ice cream for lunch! The best part was how helpful people were for the shuttle buses. Delawareans are just good folks and helped us get all the baby stuff and mega stroller on and off. See More

I attended in both 2014 and 2015. The lines are so ridiculous that it's not even worth it for anything. I'd much rather go down the street to Rita's or the vendors' actual ice cream shop than pay to get in and wait almost an hour to pay some more for some overpriced ice cream.

The 2015 Ice cream Festival was an absolute nightmare for us. Every line was a 40 minute wait or longer. I’m talking even for something as simple as getting fac...e paint. We found ourselves waiting in line forever for the park and ride to get to the festival, to get my three year olds face painted, to get a funnel cake. I need to also mention that the grass was really high like it hadn’t been cut in forever so the whole time you were waiting in these ungodly lines you were being eaten alive by bugs. The only thing that saved the whole trip is that he got to meet the cast of frozen and sing on the stage during their live performance. As an adult the trip for me sucked…. I will not be returning next year. I want to list one more thing that happened. On the way back to the car the bus driver coasted past the stop without coming to a full stop and then went on to the next park and ride stop and had a nerve to say that it was our fault he didn’t let us off for not telling him to stop. So we had to wait until he made all his rounds in order to get to our car. I had to sit on the bus with my son crying hysterically because the bus driver had a lead foot See More

Finally made it to this event, but I feel the name is misleading... There is nothing "old fashioned" about this event... Nothing more than your typical street... fair (although this one charges for admission) with vendors galore selling the same stuff (everything from soap and jewelry to aluminum siding), and some live entertainment . Sure there are several ice cream and other delicious food vendors, but all in all, an underwhelming experience. See More

I thought there was a fee to get in but nobody charged us anything...didn't see any person at an "entrance booth" anywhere. In fact the GPS took us to a path on... I think it was Shipley Rd. Where we parked & followed the crowd through the woods to the museum & further on to the events. Lines were long for ice cream but not for anything else. Television crew was filming the actor Anthony Anderson with the crew from UD Creamery for some Food Network event. Juggling Hoffmans were entertaining the crowd...Several bands were wnjoyable & not too overwhelmingly loud. Saw some beautifully handmade sea glass jewelry...ate a yummy sugar cookie. The sun was shining...not too hot...breeze blowing...Other than an overly exuberant young boy spilling his dark red gatorade on the back of my leg & skirt I'd say it was a perfectly ejoyable day. Finished it off with a refill in my giant Tiki cup from Maui Wowi...delicious lemon/vanilla/ginger concoction topped with a little pink umbrella. The only suggestion I'd make is to put up some signs letting people know that the festival was going on...something on maybe Weldin & Shipley Rds. & along the path so you'd know you were heading in the right direction. Its supposed to end at 5:00 pm but is still going strong. Great job...hopefully see you next year! Debbie Grier Hall See More

The best festival I have attended so far! Organized, delicious ice cream from sweet Lucy's , the Face painters were so nice and quick. I had ran out of enough c...ash for both my kids and she painted my daughter for free. The Magic show was phenomenal and the frozen show just looked like it was from Broadway . See More

Actually, it wasn't free to get in but you used to get a wooden ice cream spoon to redeem for free ice cream. At least admission could be free if you have to pay for everything.

Took my grandkids and we had a terrific time! Wish it was every weekend. My youngest grandson loved riding the school bus to get there . We loved running into S...tar Wars characters and not only the kids but my wife and I were both Face painted too! UD had the best flavors I went back for two!A memory to last forever and we look forward to next year! See More

I attended on Sunday. Great event! Lots of live music, especially enjoyed The 55's show. Ice cream was delicious. Very well managed and plenty of on-street parking. Put this event on your list for next year!

It was ok. Hell of a walk & the shuttle line was way too long. There weren't that many Ice Cream vendors for it to be called the Old Fashioned Ice Cream Festival. This was my first time going and my last.

It rained.
But if I have to rate this event from a vendor point of view. The layout was awful. No flow and made no sense.

Didn't like it at all :( you would expect more about ice cream there. No sample :( What 4 trucks for ice cream at $4. No rides
Where's the ice cream?????? That was no ice cream festival. :(

I enjoyed it was my very first time. My question is why do they have to allow dogs??? There was a 'stinch' smell/oder I was not comfortable with at all!!

A fun event that was entertaining and satisfying. A great place to hang out with family for the day. The Ice Cream and Food were delicious.

Can't wait till next year! Congrats UD Creamery and the pizza from Belle Vista was delish, the face painting from the Boys and girls tent made my Gracie feel like a princess for the day we love the karate demos
