National Ice Cream Day on The Mag Mile

National Ice Cream Day is Sunday, July 17, and there is nothing better than eating a scoop of delectable ice cream to cool off from this hot summer heat! The Magnificent Mile has an abundance of delicious offers for you to choose from to celebrate this happy holiday. Take a stroll down Michigan Avenue and check out some of our suggestions below.

  • Museum of Ice Cream

    Scoop up a ticket to attend the grand opening of the Museum of Ice Cream! On Saturday, July 16, this sweet spot will open its doors to the public, inviting all to celebrate everyone’s favorite treat – ice cream. Some things you may experience inside the museum include swimming in an enormous “sprinkle pool,” learning about the history of ice cream through interactive activities, and eating unlimited free samples! The inclusive and immersive environment of the Museum of Ice Cream reimagines the way that we experience and love something as simple as a scoop of delicious ice cream.

    Join the MOIC on Sunday, July 17 from 12:00 - 6:00 p.m. at Pioneer Court (401 N. Michigan Ave.) to celebrate the sweetest holiday! Make a splash into a pool full of sprinkles and cool down with a side of FREE ice cream. The pop-up event will give you a taste of this brand new ice cream experience on The Mag Mile.
