D.C. Scoop

Food festival
Please note: This event has already occurred.
D.C. Scoop, Union Market's celebration of National Ice Cream Day, but it will certainly be worth the inevitable bout of brain freeze. Many of D.C.'s fancy new ice cream purveyors, like CreamCycle, Goodies and Milk Cult, will be handing out free samples of their wares, along with longtime favorites like Dolcezza and Gifford's. The kid-friendly event features children's musicians and face-painting, and a pint-sized (see what we did there?) ice-cream eating contest from 1 to 4 p.m.
