Plan Now to attend the 41st Annual Ice Screamers Convention, to be held July 20 - 22, 2023, in York,  Pennsylvania, at the Wyndham Garden York.

This year, The Ice Screamers will share this venue with the 2023 Convention of the Antique Advertising Association of America.  Members of “quad A” are dedicated to collecting and preserving antique country store advertising, from signs to ephemera, whether tin, wood, or paper.  Visit AAAA to learn more.

While the two conventions will be administered by their respective organizations, both conventions offer several activities for all attendees, with the general public invited to join in as well.

The Public is invited to attend on Friday, July 21, 2023:

  * 10 am - 3 pm     Soda Fountain Collectibles Show and Sale offers free ice cream with admission:  $ 5 / person; and
