We’re not surprised that July is National Ice Cream Month, because that cold treat is especially welcome during these hot summer days. (Sunday, July 15th, 2018, is also National Ice Cream Day.)
July is National Ice Cream Month, first designated by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, followed by National Ice Cream Day on the third Sunday of July.
Cool off with one of these National Ice Cream Day/Month deals in the Wichita area. Make sure to follow each link to get all the details. They don’t all happen on Sunday. These are listed here in date-order for the most part.
Also, check back throughout the month, because we think there may be more events to come!

WAM is extending the celebration by offering free ice cream during its annual Summer Birthday Bash on Saturday, July 21. We love this event! (See link for details.) Admission is free and they’ll have music and special activities for all.
Williams Sonoma Ice Cream Week
Just FYI: I stopped in to the Williams Sonoma store in Bradley Fair last week when we were there for the free jazz concert. (I was looking at ice cream makers, in fact!) Their flyer showed that they have “Ice Cream Week” events going on from Monday, July 23rd to Sunday July 29. It looks like they’ll have ice cream making demos, samples to taste, and a drawing for a new Cuisinart Duo Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker. No word yet on whether there will be a special sale on ice cream makers, but it seems likely, doesn’t it?

Let me know if you’ve heard about any other National Ice Cream Day deals in or around Wichita. I can add them to the list! As for me, I’ll probably celebrate by finally (finally!) buying an ice cream maker so we can make our own ice cream (and frozen yogurt, and sherbet, etc.) I’m considering (affiliate link) these models at Amazon, so if you have ANY suggestions I would love to hear them!
