This is your excuse to stuff yourself with ice cream and feel good about it.
Scooper Bowl is the nation’s largest all-you-can-eat ice cream festival, a charity fund-raiser for kids with cancer and for cancer research.
Scooper Bowl is a three-day ice cream extravaganza returning to Bryant Park, June 1-3 for the second year, hopefully as successful as the first.
Get early bird discount tickets now for $20 knowing that 100% of ticket sales support the cancer charities.
The price goes up to $25 on May 15.
Scooper Bowl has been a Boston tradition for nearly 40 years.

Just like theater tickets and airline tickets, you purchase a ticket for a specific day. You can’t purchase a ticket for Friday and use it Saturday, or the other way around.
Tickets will be sold on-site for $25 per day. Even if you can’t attend, you can still make a donation to The Jimmy Fund on the Scooper Bowl website.
Head to the Bryant Park Fountain Terrace, 12pm-9pm on any of the three days, Friday to Sunday, June 1,-3 eat as much ice cream as you wish.
100% of proceeds benefit the Jimmy Fund, which supports pediatric and adult cancer care and research at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and pediatric care at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, a provider of rehabilitative medicine for catastrophic injury and illness, clinical care, medical education, and advanced research.
Note to our friends in and around Boston – Scooper Bowl Boston 2018 will be at City Hall Plaza June 5-7.
