I scream, you scream..... we all scream for ice cream!!

What is an ice cream crank-off, you ask? Here's a little history of how this event began....

In 1994, Killis Melton told his son-in-law, Clyde Geer: “I’m always up for a chili cook-off, but what Texas needs in the summer is an ice cream crank-off!” And the rest is history!

Over the years, thousand’s of people have enjoyed the tastes of homemade ice cream, great music, magic shows, and fun kids’ activities. Visit our Ice Cream Freezer Museum, the largest collection of freezers in the world! The Crank-Off has been featured on The Food Network and in American Profile Magazine in addition to the Dallas Morning News, local television and newspapers and magazines.

The Killis Melton’s Ice Cream Crank Off is held each year in June.

This year we invite you to join us Sunday, June 17, 2018, at Chestnut Square Historic Village from 11:30 - 3:30pm.

There is no admission fee – tickets are only required for food, games and activities.

Bring the family and experience the pleasure of home made ice cream.

You be the judge – You can help pick the winner!
