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

share on:

From the 16th till the 18th June, Old Spitalfields Market 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.


From the 16th till the 18th 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 16th-18th June and you’ll find it at 16 Horner Square, London E1 6EW. Get your tickets here.
