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 21, 2019 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!

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 making ice cream in my Cuisinart Ice Cream maker (affiliate link). And it’s almost PRIME DAY, so if you’re shopping for an ice cream maker be sure to check Amazon on July 15.
It’s so easy to use, but choosing the recipe is the hard part! (There are too many good/delicious-looking recipes on the internet.) If you have ANY suggestions I would love to hear them!
