MISSOURI 2021 ICE CREAM SOCIAL

August 10, 2021, marks the 200th anniversary of Missouri statehood. Missouri 2021 encourages communities across the state to commemorate the day with an ice cream social! Nothing brings people together like ice cream, and an ice cream social is a most appropriate way to celebrate Missouri, since the ice cream cone is the official state dessert!

Share photos of your ice cream social using the hashtag #ScoopsAcrossMissouri.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Your community's participation in the statewide Missouri 2021 Ice Cream Social could take various forms - from partnerships with ice cream shops large and small to parking lot meet-ups organized by local organizations, from specially created flavors for the day to old favorites made in hand-crank ice cream machines. The choice is yours!

Registration is open to businesses and non-profit organizations.

The only other requirements are that you register your event and plan to hold your ice cream social on the afternoon or evening of Tuesday, August 10, 2021. Please find the registration button below.
