A Village Dedicated Entirely To Gelato Is Coming To London Next Weekend

On June 29 and 30, Canopy Market in King’s Cross will be transformed into a giant gelato village.

Showcasing delicious Italian gelato, London’s Gelato Festival promises to be an in-cone-ceivably brilliant weekend. Over the summer, the festival will be travelling around Europe in search of the Kings or Queens of Italian gelato. Each city will see up to 16 different artisan traders fighting for the winning title.

This June, it is down to us Londoners to vote for our favourite. Each trader will be creating a new recipe especially for the event, so buy yourself a ticket, gorge on gelato and vote for the flavour you like best. At the end of the summer, during September’s intense final, the ultimate Chief of Gelato will be decided by a combination of the public vote and an official board of gelato experts (not a bad job, eh?).

London’s Gelato Festival takes place on the 29th-30th June (11am–7am) and you’ll find it at Canopy Market, 1 Wharf Road, King’s Cross, N1C 4BZ. Your ticket will include a mini cone of each of the gelatos competing at the event, plus 2 scoops of your favourites. There’ll also be masterclasses and games in The Gelato School.
