Join Robert D Austin Jr, one of the administrators of a very popular local Boise history Facebook group of over 6,000 members and special guest John Sowell of the Idaho Statesmen for the first ever panel discussion on Boise’s history with ice cream.  Also joining will be Goody’s owner Brett Palmateer and Scott Wink of Boise’s Best Bites. Discover how several key factors over the past 120 years have helped shape Boise’s obsession with the frozen treat.  From frontier town to an agriculture and dairy center of national importance, we’ll talk about how the ice cream industry in Boise went from pharmacy soda fountains to drive ins to ice cream trucks then to this modern group of ice cream makers like Goody’s, The Stil, Stella’s , Reed’s Dairy and C4 Creamery. During the morning you’ll also have the opportunity to see the team at Goody’s pulling out a batch of fresh made ice cream from that morning or making waffle cones.  [Full 2019 Ice Cream Festival Calendar] [Places to Stay in Boise
