Sweet tooth patrons can expect to find activities ranging from ice cream-eating contests to raffles and giveaways. Those looking for something salty to pair with their favorite dessert can nosh on bites from Timber Pizza Co. and Luke’s Lobster. Ice cream vendors will put their best foot forward to win the crown title of Best DC Scoop and a panel of judges – including Dolcezza Gelato’s Robb Duncan and Ice Cream Jubilee’s Victoria Lai – will determine the winner.

DC Scoop brings local brands together to showcase their products to the DC community. Since winning DC Scoop last year, Victoria Lai has taken her business to the next level. Just this past month, she launched her first brick and mortar location, leaving behind her day job as a lawyer. “Ice Cream Jubilee and I would not be where we are today if it hadn’t been for The DC Scoop,” Lai said. She’ll be returning for this year’s event as both a vendor and judge.
