You'll scream, we'll scream and everyone in Brisbane will scream in March, when the city's ice cream festival returns for its second year. Once again taking over the new West Village in West End — fittingly, the old Peters Ice Cream Factory — the fest is back with more scoops of frozen goodness than you've likely ever dreamed of, including both old favourites and inventive new creations.

In short: if it's a frosty, creamy sweet treat of the ice cream or gelato variety, whether simply piled onto a cone, delightfully smashed into a sandwich or ingeniously fashioned into some other tasty concoction, you'll find it here on March 10. That includes the exciting likes of  La Macelleria's pistachio gelato-filled cannoli, Ruby the Little Red Ice Cream Van's Stranger Things-themed soft serve and Chop Chop Chang's serving up Golden Gaytime bao. And, based on last year's lineup, we're guessing everyone from Gelato Messina and Queen of the Pops to Boss Bites and Minus 32 will be there as well.

Just what else is in store hasn't been revealed, but attendees can expect more than 20 ice cream-fuelled market stalls to visit, and even a few old-school ice cream van jingles ringing through the air. Live music and boozy frozen beverages were also a part of the 2017 offering, so fingers crossed.

And while entry is free once again (although you'll have to pay for your ice cream, obviously), registration is absolutely required. With tickets for the first fest snapped up faster than you can devour your favourite dessert, they're certain to be popular. This year, Brisbane Ice Cream Festival will operate in three timed sessions — from 11am–1pm, 1–3pm, and 3–5pm — with tickets available online from 10am on Tuesday, February 13.

Brisbane Ice Cream Festival takes place on March 10 at West Village, 97 Boundary Road, West End. For more information, head to the festival website and Facebook page. Register for your free ticket online at 10am on February 13.
