Ice Cream Extravaganza Primer

Our first special dining event is upon us! With one week of fall semester in the books, we turn our attention to Garden Commons for the ultimate summer send-off.

🍦 Ice Cream Extravaganza 🍦

On Thursday, September 8th from 5-8pm, Garden Commons will be hosting ice cream and gelato experts who want to share their craft with you. Joining us — and serving their products — will be Madisono’s Gelato, Young’s Jersey Dairy and Miami Ice. Meanwhile, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and Graeter’s have given us some fun things to give away during the dinner. It will be a true ice cream celebration!

Madisono’s Gelato is hand-crafted and features some really unique artisanal flavors. The Cincinnati-based company makes gelato and sorbetto that is sold out of Market Street at MacCracken, if you’re looking for your own pint!

Get to know Madisono’s Gelato with our “Locally Grown” piece. 

Young’s Jersey Dairy is based in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Young’s Dairy is more than just an ice cream maker, with a fun setup in Yellow Springs that is definitely worth a day-trip. You can treat yourself to Young’s Dairy ice cream with a stop by Encounter at Maplestreet Station!

Miami Ice, based out of Armstrong Student Center, makes their own fresh gelato in-house, in addition to their ice cream fold-in creations, and offers a variety of tasty flavors!

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is based out of Columbus, Ohio and can be bought by the pint at Dorsey Market and Market Street at MacCracken.

Graeter’s is a local favorite, based out of Cincinnati, Ohio, and has a storefront uptown!
