Bryant Park to Host Charity 'Scooper Bowl'

The nation's largest All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival lands in Bryant Park, June 1-3.

The Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl®

New Yorkers who scream for ice cream will have their every wish granted when Bryant Park hosts the Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl® New York, a three-day "fun-raising" charity event that will feature an all-you-can-eat experience from some of the most respected frozen dessert brands in the country.

A Boston tradition for 35 years, the New York debut will showcase dozens of flavors served by top national brands and favorite local craft creameries. Try selections from Adirondack Creamery, Baskin-Robbins, Ben & Jerry's, Big Gay Ice Cream, Breyers, Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, Coolhaus, Graeter's Ice Cream, Häagen Dazs, Vice Cream, and Wafels & Dinges (Belgian ice creams), with delicious non-dairy offerings from DF Mavens (vegan ice creams) and SAMBAZON (superfruit frozen sorbets). Breads Bakery and UnReal Candy will provide artisanal toppings.

Come to the Fountain Terrace, 12pm-9pm on Thursday, June 1, Friday, June 2, and Saturday, June 3, and eat as much ice cream as you wish. 100% of proceeds benefit the Jimmy Fund, which supports pediatric and adult cancer care and research at Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and pediatric care at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, a provider of rehabilitative medicine for catastrophic injury and illness, clinical care, medical education, and advanced research.

We thank these companies and the newly opened Whole Foods Market facing the park on Sixth Avenue, for their generosity and participation. Early-bird tickets are only $20 per day and can be purchased at Eventbrite through May 31. Tickets will be sold on-site for $25 per day. If you sadly can't attend but still wish to contribute, please go to the Eventbrite site, select a date and "0 tickets", and add a dollar amount to the line "Donate to Scooper Bowl® ".
