Cincinnati’s Longest Ice Cream Sundae Building and Eating Party

Wrap up summer by helping to construct an ice cream sundae that’s 1.5 blocks long!

Come on Saturday, August 10 at 5:30 pm to enjoy more than 700 feet of ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, cherries and sprinkles that has been a year in the planning!  The ice cream build is set to begin right at 5:45 pm.  

Fifth grader Jack Crego won Westwood United Methodist Church’s challenge to create a way to help members of the local community to meet each other and develop relationships.

The event is being funded by a mini grant inspired by the Discipleship Ministries of The United Methodist Church’s #SeeAllThePeople project, with other contributions from Kroger and Home Depot.

Construction supplies will be donated to Habitat for Humanity after the event.

You can help make Jack’s delicious dream a reality! Bring your family, friends and camera to make lasting memories and meet new friends.

The ice cream event and sampling is free and open to the public.

Clean-up and tear-down volunteers also welcome.  For more volunteer information, contact

The event is being held during Westwood Second Saturday Splash block party, and we will build the ice cream sundae at 3460 Epworth Ave.
