Ice Cream Festival at the Canada Agriculture Museum

Do you like ice cream? Visit the Canada Agriculture Museum on Sunday, August 7, and learn about the journey from cow to cone. Practice your milking technique on the Museum’s wooden cow and get the scoop on how dairying technology now includes milking machines, and even robotic milkers.

Try your hand at an old-fashioned manual ice cream maker, and taste your own yummy creation. Local beekeepers will be at the Museum to explain the buzz about honeybees and the essential role that pollinators play in ice cream production. To add to the festivities, join in on family yoga or speak with members of the Ottawa Fire Services who will be showcasing their community programming.
