Summer Ice Cream Festival returns to Kent Life

Kent Life in Maidstone welcomes back the popular annual Ice Cream Festival on 26 August 2019.

Choose from over 20 delicious flavours of ice cream from vendors at the festival and pick your favourite topping from the selection of delicious syrups, marshmallows and sprinkles available.

As well as sampling delicious tasters from the ice cream vendors, visit the chocolatiers and sweet stalls offering yummy treats including chocolate kebabs, waffles and candy floss.

Sit back and listen to the live music on the ‘Dairy Stage’ in between enjoying all the other fun things to do at the Festival including Face Painting and traditional entertainment from the Punch and Judy show.

Pop into the Village Hall and put your creative talents to good use whilst grownups can treat themselves to a tipple from our well stocked bar.

Kent Life provides plenty of fun activities for children of all ages who can run wild in the outdoor play area, burn off steam on the pedal tractors, leap on the bouncy castle or take a ride on the land train or on the adorable donkeys*.  Indoor attractions include soft play areas and cuddle corner where children can hold and stroke the rabbits and guinea pigs.  Watch the fabulous daily owl displays from the Kent Owl Academy and watch the inquisitive Meercats in their enclosure.

A fun way to visit some of the historic farm buildings is to follow Kent Life’s nature trail round the farm.
